Member states of the European Union have agreed on a plan to control fraudulently labeled horsemeat in the food market. The one-month plan, effective immediately, is to detect the presence of unlabeled horsemeat by testing thousands of samples across the EU.

In addition, horse meat will be tested for equine medicine residues. Meanwhile, the meat scandals continue to develop in Europe.

A Dutch meat trader was identified as playing a prominent role in the supply chain of fraudulent meat by French anti-fraud officials. And horse meat was also found in some food items collected from a number of Norwegian supermarket chains.
