Dutch meat recall affects 25 Swedish companies

Dutch food authorities decided Wednesday, to recall some 50,000 tons of beef, because it may contain traces of horsemeat, and according to the Swedish National Food Agency, 25 Swedish companies have purchased the meat, according to news agency TT.

On Thursday, the Agency will contact the inspection authorities so that tests can be carried out at the companies.

The Dutch authorities say that the meat was sold by two wholesalers, and that it's unclear where the meat came from originally, which is why, according to Reuters, there's a chance it may be contaminated with horsemeat.
