Horse meat not on school menu

Wednesday 13 February 2013 Updated: 21/02 09:27

SOLIHULL Council says it it confident children across the borough are not being served horse meat in their school dinners.

A Council Spokesperson said: “Because the majority of our meals are made from scratch using fresh farm assured meat from the UK, and having received reassurances from our frozen food suppliers, we are confident that no food served by Solihull Catering Service contains horse meat.

“The Council can confirm that it is not one of the 28 local authorities selected by the FSA to undertake horse DNA sampling.

"However, the FSA have announced that DNA sampling will form part of their annual National Sampling Programme for 2013/14 and Solihull may be one of the local authorities involved in sampling if it is undertaken on a regional basis.”
