Our big food chains are responsible for what goes over the counter
ON THE BBC news the other morning, Iceland's chief executive was trying to blame local councils for the contaminated food crisis.
How he can even think that this is where the blame lies is unbelievable.
Big companies like Iceland and others have access to thousands of people on a daily basis with imported food produce from all over the world and if he thinks that to harm a single person with their products is the councils' fault, well he ought to think again.
The news at the moment is about horsemeat that people are putting into the food chain – but what else is there?

It is my opinion that Iceland and all the others big food chains are responsible for what goes over the counter in stores. I did see one company state that it is their responsibility.

IF THERE is anyone that still believes that Great Britain is not completely controlled by a bunch of foreigners, they only have to read what happened to our elected minister.
Britain's Environment Secretary was informed that he must consult with Commissioner Ciolos – who you will remember as the former "Romanian Agricultural Minister" – before he could do anything about the horsemeat food scandal.
He was then instructed to look up and read EU Regulation No 178/2002.
EU Regulation 178/2008 transfers responsibility for food safety from each member state to the "EU Food Safety Agency". Not one British Minister can do anything about the horsemeat scandal.
We cannot send any food back to the EU countries on the grounds that it would be classed by the EU as "nationally racist" (which idiotic member of our parliament signed up to this fiasco?).
This is the same law that bans all shops from removing suspect items from public display when not a direct "danger" to public health. So a few supermarkets should be in line for a hefty fine for "breaking EU law" then, shouldn't they?

The Telegraph says
With raids on a Welsh meat plant and a Yorkshire slaughterhouse and an equine drug in horse carcasses exported from Britain to France, we should also look to get our house in order!
