Britain condemns 'criminal' horsemeat scandal
The British government accused unknown criminals for a growing scandal of horsemeat being sold in imported beef products that has generated shock headlines in a country where many recoil in horror at the very idea of eating horses.


Prime Minister David Cameron assured consumers on Friday there was no health risk from a product considered a delicacy in France and Italy. But, as the furore saps public confidence in food labelling and hygiene supervision, he called it "completely unacceptable," and his office condemned "acts of criminality." (Reuters)
