Twenty-nine beef products out of 2,501 tested in Britain have been found to contain horsemeat, the Food Standards Agency said on Friday.

"The overwhelming majority of beef products in this country do not contain horse. The examples we have had are totally unacceptable, but they are the exceptions," FSA chief executive Catherine Brown said.
