Horsemeat found in mincemeat

Approximately 2,000 packs of the Romanian mincemeat called ‘mici,’ suspected of containing horsemeat instead of beef, were sold by a Ploiesti-based company to 36 counties, realitatea.net reports. The packs were removed from shelves in Bucharest and laboratory analyses confirm the suspicion. The Ploiesti-based company, administered by the husband of an employee of DSV Prahova, was fined RON 30,000. The chief of the Sanitary-Veterinary and Food Safety Department (DSVSA) Prahova, Mihai Terecoasa said that authorities are now waiting for the results of three other laboratory analyses on meat produced by the same company.
