Wholesalers urged to track ‘horsemeat’ crisis

The Federation of Wholesale Distributors (FWD) is advising wholesalers and retailers handling processed beef products branded by and supplied by other producers to regularly visit www.food.gov.uk to check if there are any that need to be withdrawn.

David Visick, FWD communications director said: “The FWD is in contact with DEFRA and the Food Standards Agency to ensure the public has confidence in the supply of processed beef products. We are working closely with members to ensure that processed meat products contain no undeclared species. Members are currently carrying out tests to establish that own-label products are both safe and accurately labelled, as well as working with suppliers to ensure responsibilities to consumers are met.
