Should we stop attacking the global food industry?
There's been an outcry across Europe because some food products sold in supermarkets as beef have been found to contain horsemeat. Sweden, France, Ireland and the UK have all been affected. Abattoirs in Romania and processing plants in the UK are being investigated. A high level meeting at the EU takes place later today in Brussels.
All this has raised questions about honesty in labelling and the quality of some processed food. But are we being too quick to condemn the global food industry?
