Horse meat found in one in 5 Italian beef samples

Rome, April 15 - Horse meat levels of over 1% were found in roughly one in five samples of beef recently taken by Italian health police and sent to EU authorities Monday. The NAS hygiene police found horse meat in 93 of the 454 beef products they analysed but no traces of the anti-inflammatory drug phenilbutazone, which has been widely detected in the European horse-meat scandal. The EU, which will announce the results of the survey Tuesday, asked for the samples on February 19.
