WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Poland's leading veterinarian says that of three cases recently detected of horse meat in beef in Poland, two were from domestic meat processers while the third came from another country.
Janusz Zwiazek, Poland's chief national veterinarian, announced last week that horse DNA was found in three samples taken from meat facilities in Poland, with the meat coming from various domestic and foreign suppliers.
In a statement Tuesday, Zwiazek said that of the three samples, two came from Polish meat producers and one from another country. He did not name the other country. Horse meat has recently been found in beef dishes across Europe, evoking concern about mislabeling and disgust in places where it is not traditionally eaten. Authorities say there's no health risk.
