FSA on meat in takeaways: 'This is a persistent problem'

Takeaway owners are to face a new testing programme, after a watchdog found nearly a third of lamb takeaways it checked contained a different meat.

The Foods Standards Agency (FSA) found that 43 out of 145 samples of lamb takeaways - usually curries or kebabs - were wrongly described.

Speaking to the BBC, Andrew Rhodes from the FSA said that the issue was a "persistent problem" which was "clearly unacceptable to consumers".
