Ireland blames Polish supplier for horsemeat in burgers

Dublin has said ingredients imported from a Polish supplier were responsible for the horse meat in burger scandal, which forced UK and Irish supermarkets to pull 10m beef burgers off their shelves.

DNA test results released by the Irish government on Saturday traced the contamination of burgers made at ABP Food Group’s Silvercrest plant in Ireland to a low value beef cut and trimming product sourced from an EU accredited Polish supplier.
