'Legal action' in Europe
LEGAL action over the horse meat scandal is to be mounted in Europe, Environment Secretary Owen Paterson has said as he described the contamination of beef products as a case of fraud against the public.
Mr Paterson said the scandal appeared to be "extensive" across Europe but he repeated his rejection of calls for a ban on meat imports, saying that the Food Standards Agency (FSA) advice was that all products on sale are safe for consumption.
"This is a case of fraud and a conspiracy against the public; this is a criminal action, substituting one material for another," he told BBC Breakfast.
"If a British consumer goes into a retail store and buys a beef product, they should expect to get beef in that product, not horse."
