16 December, 2008


The Agriculture Minister, Michelle Gildernew MP has given all meat products, from the North, on sale in the shops a clean bill of health and encouraged the public to enjoy them.

And the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has added its assurance that people can be confident that beef, pork and milk on sale here is as safe to eat and drink as it was before this incident.

Agriculture Minister Michelle Gildernew MP MLA said:

"My department has worked closely with the FSA to support its action to ensure that public health is protected. I appreciate the full co-operation of the industry in ensuring that all product is safe. The industry has an excellent reputation which is well justified and I am sure the public will row in behind it, give it full support and enjoy a wholesome diet."
