The European Union is urging members to conduct random tests to tackle a widening scandal over mislabelled horsemeat.
Health Commissioner Tonio Borg says all members should carry out DNA tests on processed beef for traces of horsemeat for three months from March 1.
He says Horsemeat should also be tested for the presence of the veterinary medicine commonly known as bute.
The measures follow the discovery that meat sold in up to 16 European countries labelled as beef contained horsemeat.
