EU officials held emergency talks in Brussels on Wednesday on the horsemeat scandal.
Environment, agriculture and consumer ministers were in the Belgian capital to discuss ways to solve the crisis after the discovery of incorrectly-labelled horsemeat in as many as 16 countries.
Owen Paterson, the British environment secretary, urged his EU counterparts to share information as a means of combating the problem.
