Poland supplies Aldi horsemeat

Comment on this story

Horsemeat found in beef products withdrawn from German shelves had been traced to a supplier in Poland, news weekly Spiegel reported yesterday, citing European officials. Spiegel said that beef products with traces of horse found in goulash sold by low-cost retailer Aldi were produced by German firm Dreistern Konserven, which in turn bought its meat via a dealer from Mipol, a Polish-based firm. Dreistern Konserven acknowledged that traces of horse DNA had been discovered in its products but insisted it was merely a processing firm. “Dreistern is not involved in slaughtering nor the chopping up of meat. It buys meat already chopped up only from certified meat deliverers,” it said. – Sapa-AFP
