Iceland Foods Ltd; update.
Since publication of this article, Iceland have informed us that only a very small (0.1%) level of horse DNA was found in two of their own brand quarter pound burgers when tested by the FSAI. They point out that result is well below the threshold level of 1% which the UK FSA applies as indicative of contamination or adulteration, and that a test result of 0.1% is so low that it could amount to a “trace” level. Iceland subsequently tested samples of burgers from the same production batch to the same tolerances used by the FSAI and no evidence of any horse DNA was found. Iceland also state that since then over 2000 tests of Iceland beef products have been carried out and no trace of horse meat or DNA has ever been found.
