Review into FSA response to horse meat debacle

Review into FSA response to horse meat debacle

The FSA Board has agreed that a review will be carried out into the Agency’s response to the recent incidents of adulteration of processed beef products with horse and pig meat and DNA.

The work will be conducted independently of the Agency, headed by Professor Pat Troop with a secretariat provided by the FSA.

The FSA says Professor Troop will have unrestricted access to all documents held by the Agency that are relevant to the scope of the review. She will also have access to FSA Board members and officials. The secretariat will aim to secure access to any external people or organisations as necessary.

The findings of the review will be presented to the Board at its open Board meeting on 4th June 2013, with a formal report to be submitted to the FSA by the end of June 2013 for publication.

This project will feed into a larger Government review of this issue.
