Two British sites raided in horse meat inquiry
Two meat plants became the first UK suppliers suspected yesterday of passing off horse meat for beef.
The Food Standards Agency, accompanied by police officers, raided Peter Boddy slaughterhouse in Todmorden, West Yorkshire, and meat processing plant Farmbox Meats at Llandre in Aberystwyth, West Wales, in connection with the investigation into the horse meat scandal.
Production at the plants was suspended pending the outcome of investigations into claims they supplied and used horse carcases in meat products purporting to be beef for burgers and kebabs.
