Netherlands: Meatballs may have dog meat

Saturday, April 6, 2013 5:26 PM


AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, April 6 (UPI) -- Dutch officials said they suspect dog meat was used in meatballs produced in Spain and sold in Amsterdam.

The investigation began 18 months ago when the owner of an animal shelter reported to authorities she suspected a company that disposes of animal remains was instead using the carcasses for meat.

Think Spain said the woman, Olga Costa, of Ponteverda, Spain, said she heard from a woman whose pet was put to sleep that she went to the company's headquarters in an attempt to say a final goodbye to her pet and found workers deboning dog carcasses.

Dutch officials said the investigation traced the dog meat to a distributor in Amsterdam. The suspected tainted meat has been sent for DNA samples to confirm its origin.
