Lancashire County Council has found 100kg of horsemeat in a consignment of beef from Hungary, with 30kg of it already sold to the public. The meat was imported by Hungarian Food Ltd in Preston and sold on its market stall in the town and a shop in Liverpool called Taste of Hungary, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) said. It said the horse flesh was being sold in 1kg bags labelled as "diced beef". The remaining unsold meat has been withdrawn from sale. A FSA spokesman said the European Commission and the Hungarian authorities had been informed and the meat will be tested for the veterinary drug bute as part of the council's investigations. The food scandal erupted in January with horsemeat DNA being found in school dinners and supermarket products across the country.
