Prime Minister attacks stores over horse meat scandal
Gordon Rayner, Robert Winnett and Christopher HopeAs Asda withdrew four beef products following the discovery of horse DNA in bolognese sauce, David Cameron was said to be increasingly angered at the way consumers had been “misled” about what they were buying.
The Prime Minister believes that senior executives of major stores should have given media interviews to explain why horse meat had got on to British plates and what checks were made with suppliers.
A senior No 10 source said on Thursday: “It is not acceptable for retailers to remain silent while their customers have been misled. The supermarkets need to justify their action and reassure the public.”
