Horsemeat: Romanian Abattoirs 'Not To Blame'

Sky News has uncovered the paper trail which appears to exonerate the two Romanian abattoirs at the centre of the horsemeat scandal.

An invoice released by the CarmOlimp slaughterhouse in Brasov shows that the consignment of horsemeat, which eventually found its way to the ready meal factory in Luxembourg, was clearly and correctly labelled.

It bears the words 'Carne Cal Integral' which means 'whole horsemeat' in Romanian.

That would back up the results of a preliminary investigation by the government in Bucharest which said the accusations of wrongdoing in the eastern European country were incorrect.
