Meat products have been falsely labelled - EU health chief

(Reuters) - All companies that have handled falsely-labelled horsemeat are under suspicion, the European Union's health chief said on Wednesday, adding the Commission was considering strengthening relevant law.

EU ministers are to meet later on Wednesday in Brussels to work out their response to a scandal over the sale of horsemeat in products sold as containing beef.

"It is evident that somewhere down the line, someone ... has fraudulently or perhaps negligently labelled a product in a deceptive way," Borg told reporters.

Wednesday's meeting would focus on strengthening existing EU law, Borg said, adding the Commission was studying the possibility of extending country-of-origin labelling to processed meat products.
