meals pass horsemeat tests by Somerset Trading Standards
in the Burnham-On-Sea area have this week been reassured that
school meals are free of horsemeat.
County Councils Trading Standards team has completed testing
of school meals following concerns about the horsemeat scandal.
The council said on Friday that 28 samples were taken from a broad
range of suppliers across the county and then analysed. All have
been found to be clear of horsemeat.
A County Council spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We are
pleased that the results have come back showing no signs of horsemeat.
We will remain vigilant and continue the process of testing food."
Trading Standards team will
be contacting the kitchens where the samples were taken individually
to let them know the results.
