Burger King stops taking Silvercrest burgers

UPDATE: Fast food company Burger King has stopped sourcing burgers from Monaghan supplier Silvercrest.

23rd January, 2013

Fast food company Burger King has stopped sourcing burgers from Monaghan supplier Silvercrest, which is owned by ABP.

Burger King said in a statement that as a precautionary measure it will source its meat for its British and Irish restaurants elsewhere because horse meat DNA has been found in batches of beef burgers made at the Ballybay plant.

This could mean that some of the restaurant chain's product range could be temporarily unavailable, it said.
