LETTER: Meat update

I RECEIVED with thanks a letter from Peter Marks regarding horse meat in Co-op products and reassuring customers that contaminated products have been removed and testing continues.

I have now asked him to assure me that Co-op dog and cat food don’t contain horse meat.

These are both products I have purchased from the Southwick and Shoreham stores.

I received this reply: “Thank you for contacting the Co-operative.

“In response to your enquiry, I can confirm that we do not specify the use of horse meat in our pet food, and our supplier has assured us they do not use it.”

Great. Thank you.
