Company in Denmark sold horse meat instead of beef

A meat processing company in Denmark sold horse meat instead of beef. According to the chief investigator of the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration, analysis of product samples from packages labeled "meat pizza," distributed by the company Harby, revealed a content of horse meat, pork and beef.

The company’s administration claims that customers were aware of the presence of horse meat in the produce.

However, a number of questioned pizzeria owners claim to have been deceived.
