“Nearly a year since our investigation found evidence of food fraud in lamb takeaways, it’s shocking to find that one in five samples tested were still contaminated with other meats.
“We want the Government, local authorities and the FSA to take tougher action to crack down on food fraud offenders and ensure the recommendations from the Elliott review are implemented.”
