No legal follow-up to horsemeat in food

The massive outcry in Sweden last fall, over horsemeat in processed food, has not resulted in any legal action.

Horsemeat was found in a wide range of Swedish foodstuffs, ranging from meatballs to lasagna. The National Food Agency, which initially said it would file a complaint against the foods company Findus, did not pursue that action. Family-owned foods company Dafgårds did file a complaint, but a preliminary investigation into its supplier Globe Foods was abandoned.
