Concerns were raised this weekend that government officials from the Meat Hygiene Service (MHS) have been approving meat for sale in the UK that should have been condemned or disposed of under regulations implemented to keep BSE out of the food chain. Police in Wales and London have now arrested a total of seven people, all of who have been released on bail, as part of a major nationwide investigation into the multi-million pound trade in recycling condemned meat, deliberately cleaning it and labelling it to make it appear fit for human consumption.
