Following on from the recent scandal over the presence of horse DNA in some Irish and British beef, the UK has announced that pork DNA has been found in Halal meat intended for consumption by Moslem prisoners. Islam does not allow the consumption of pig meat in any form.
Personally, I think that the Food Standards Authority of Ireland has taken the lead in doing these DNA tests and we'll see more and more headlines like this from different countries as more and more governments order that they be carried out.
Any vegetarians on board? How would ye feel about broccoli DNA in carrot cake?
