More than two thirds of meat products tested contained undeclared ingredients, according to a recent research study, prompted by revelations about food production in Europe.
“Our study confirms that the mislabelling of processed meats is commonplace in South Africa and not only violates food labelling regulations, but also poses economic, religious, ethical and health impacts,” said animal sciences professor Louw Hoffman.
“Unconventional species such as donkey, goat and water buffalo were also discovered in a number of products,” said Hoffman in a statement on the university website.
Up to 68 per cent of 139 meat samples from shops and butcheries had irregular ingredients, the DNA-based study found, with pork and chicken most often substituted for other meat.
