An EC meeting convenes today to rubber-stamp new tighter meat regulations, which, while well intentioned, could leave problems for the traditional British banger. Quite properly, EU member states are introducing a standard, tighter definition of meat, by amending European Labelling Directive 2000/13. However, without parallel action to amend separate UK legislation, ASDA fears this change could inadvertently leave the door open to poor quality, low-meat content foods being confusingly labelled as sausages.
