Prison inmates sue Government over tainted Halal meat

The Ministry of Justice is being sued over the contamination of Halal meat in prisons, Justice Minister Jeremy Wright told MPs today.

A "small number" of claims have been filed and would be "robustly defended where appropriate," Mr Wright said in response to a parliamentary question from shadow justice secretary Sadiq Khan.

Earlier this month, McColgan Quality Foods Limited, a Northern Ireland-based company, was identified as the source of "the very small number of halal savoury beef pastry products" found to contain pork DNA supplied to prisons.
