Dutch Meat Scandal Goes International

The Dutch meat scandal has gone international. One hundred and twenty-four German companies have bought meat from the company in the Dutch town of Oss where beef containing horse meat was sold as beef. The Netherlands has informed the Dutch Ministry of Protection about this. In total, 16 European countries have received this meat. The main ones are Germany, France, Spain and Portugal. The German Ministry has said that a variety of beef products containing horse meat from the Netherlands have probably been removed from German companies. Since the beginning of the horse meat scandal in February, major controls are being implemented in Germany.
