Somerset County Council's school horsemeat results awaited
11:00am Friday 1st March 2013 in News
OFFICIALS at Somerset County Council cannot say for sure whether horsemeat has been fed to children.
The council has been testing meals served up in schools and is awaiting the findings.
A County Hall spokesman said an investigation had been launched, but it had not heard yet if meat was contaminated because of a backlog with the test results.
Separately, the Food Standards Agency said six carcasses slaughtered in Somerset were contaminated with the anti-inflammatory drug bute and “may have entered the food chain”.
The FSA said the carcasses were sent to France, and it is currently working with the French authorities.
