Company recalls meat due to breach of BSE safety rules

NORTHERN IRELAND - A Northern Ireland company is recalling thousands of cuts of meat sold in the UK, France, Italy and Spain after a breach of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) safety procedures allowed an untested cow into the food chain. The incident comes only months after the EU relaxed restrictions on the sale of UK meat to the continent on the condition that it maintained stringent testing controls. For processors, it also highlights the importance of traceability procedures and the maintaining the integrity of data throughout the food chain.
