Report on FSA response to the horse meat scandal now published

Professor Pat Troop has completed her independent review of the Food Standards Agency’s response to the adulteration of processed beef products with horse and pork meat and DNA. The final report has been published.

Professor Troop presented her key findings to the FSA Board and the final report summarises her recommendations.

The recommendations include:

the need for improved intelligence across the food industry
the need for the FSA to strengthen its major incident plan
improved clarity of the role of Government departments in large, complex incidents
review of the FSA’s powers and the use of framework agreements and codes of conduct

A full FSA written response to Professor Troop’s final report will be published shortly, prior to a discussion of the report by the FSA Board at its meeting on 16th July.

The full report can be downloaded here.
