Horsemeat: Peter Boddy slaughterhouse suspension lifted

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has lifted the suspension of Peter Boddy Licensed Slaughterhouse, which had had its operations suspended due to the horsemeat scandal.

The slaughterhouse, based in Todmorden, West Yorkshire will be allowed to operate again, after being shut down on 12 February.

However, the FSA has warned the business it will "not hesitate" to withdraw its approval if it proves to be non-compliant with requirements again.

The slaughterhouse was suspended in the first place for accusations of supplying horse carcases to Farmbox Meats, Llandre, Aberystwyth.
