Burger Manufacturing Company cleared over horsemeat

New tests have cleared a Powys company suspected of supplying beef burgers containing horsemeat.

The Burger Manufacturing Company based near Builth Wells withdrew its products in February after tests suggested they contained more than 1% horsemeat.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said "subsequent tests confirmed the presence of horse DNA at levels below the 1% threshold for reporting."

The company said the FSA could have waited for conclusive tests.
