In Sweden, nearly 70 metric tons of pork fillets have been labeled and sold as beef.
The meat was dyed and labeled as beef tenderloin, according to reports. The pork was imported over two years and had been purchased from grocery stores.
The National Food Agency (Livsmedelsverket) confirmed that the beef was actually pork cuts dyed pink to look like beef meat. Initially, Tomas Narving of food wholesaler Svensk Cater first found that the beef was fake.
CKA Chark and Heat och Barterinvest firms, which imported the fake meat to Sweden, have been reported to the police.
