Coveney Announces Further Conclusive Test Results

The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine announced late this evening that in addition to his earlier announcement in which he had confirmed the source of the equine DNA in beef burgers, further tests of the Polish ingredient concerned have been released and are showing up to 20% horse DNA content relative to beef. This confirms previous results that the raw material from Poland is the source of equine DNA content in certain beef burgers.
