More than a fifth of meat sample tests in 2017 found DNA from animals not on the labelling, the BBC has learned.
Out of 665 results from England, Wales and Northern Ireland collected by the Food Standards Agency, 145 were partly or wholly made up of unspecified meat.
The FSA said the levels were consistent with "deliberate inclusion" - but added testing had targeted those businesses suspected of "compliance issues".

I have worked with James Constable over the past few months on several recruitment briefs for varied interim and permanent roles. It has been a pleasure to work with a recruitment consultant who has an excellent understanding of the food industry and the roles that we have been looking to fill. For senior level positions, James has conducted a thorough screening, including meeting the candidate face to face, and has therefore been able to provide an excellent shortlist. Some roles have also been urgent, due to an immediate requirement in the business, and James was able to prioritise and help source these roles, whilst not losing focus on the other briefs. I would wholeheartedly recommend James for an effective, efficient and friendly approach to recruitment. Many thanks!
