Response to reports horse meat has been found in beef burgers

You may have seen reports in the media concerning horse meat being found in some frozen beef burgers, following tests by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland.

We are taking this extremely seriously, despite the fact that we are not implicated in this report.

As soon as we were made aware of the issue we launched a full traceability audit with our supplier. This is still under way.

In the meantime as a precaution we have withdrawn a number of frozen burger products from sale.
