Fake labels at food plant.

FAKE meat stamps have been found in food processing plants.

The Food Safety Authority said they have seized sheets of dodgy labels at M&N Meats Ltd in Corbrack, Ballybay, Co Monaghan.

And they have taken records from D'Arcy foods in the town as part of a cross-border probe into suspected repackaging, relabelling and distribution of meat and poultry. Beef from a third company is also being probed.

A Consumers' Association chief executive Dermott Jewell warned: "Until this is completely investigated none of us will know exactly what we are buying."
