Horsemeat DNA found in Lurgan firm’s meatloaf
Tesco has withdrawn a line of frozen meatloaf made by Lurgan company Eurostock Foods.
The product made on the firm’s premises outside Lurgan has been found to contain horsemeat.
Labelled as Tesco Simply Roast Meatloaf, the product was withdrawn after tests revealed it contained between 2% and 5% horsemeat.
Eurostock Foods said it was shocked and disappointed by the discovery and that it was launching an investigation.
In a statement the family-owned firm confirmed that product manufactured in its Northern Ireland plant had been found to contain equine DNA.
