Rip Off Britain, Food: Series 1 Episode 2 of 10

A year after the horsemeat scandal, just how much can we trust the meat that ends up on our plates? With further food scares about TB and hepatitis in our meat, the team discovers the truth about the risks and, with the help of top scientists, reveals how to make sure your food is safe to eat.

Plus, the team finds out more about the most common food poisoning bug in Britain, thought to be present in around two thirds of raw chicken. Is enough being done to tackle it, and what can you do to avoid getting it?

Also on the programme, new ways of testing meat to stop anything like the horsemeat scandal happening again.
