Dutch horsemeat sold as beef for two years
(Note – Most of the 50,000 Tons of meat from this recall have already been sold and consumed – on the market since 2011! – Jerry)
At least 124 German butchers, meat dealers and food companies in all states except for Bremen and Sauerland bought horse from the distributor in question, which delivered to 370 retailers across Europe, Der Spiegel reported.
Dutch authorities have called back any remaining meat which, they said, posed no health risks. The abattoir, Willy Selten, has been shut down.
