Cancer bacon scare.
THOUSANDS of consumers have eaten pork contaminated by a cancer-causing agent, officials warned yesterday.
The meat, including sausages and rashers, has been sold in supermarkets and butcher shops.
It got into the food chain after 1,500 pigs were secretly moved from a farm in Co Waterford being investigated for allegedly using the banned substance Carbadox.
Although some of the animals were slaughtered the Department of Agriculture is trying to trace the rest.
A spokesman said: "This is a very serious breach of regulations."
