England Raids Plants Looking for Horsemeat

British police searching for the source of horsemeat in kebabs and burgers on Tuesday raided two meat plants in the first such operation since a scandal over the mislabelling of beef gripped Europe.

France meanwhile became the second European country after Britain to confirm that frozen lasagne also contained horse, while supermarkets in Switzerland and the Netherlands pulled more ready-made meals from the shelves out of precaution.

The developments came on the eve of a European Union crisis meeting in Brussels to address the scandal, which has raised suspicions of links to organised crime and public fears over health.
