IFA calls food labelling into question

The Irish Farmers Association has said more than half of pigmeat sold here is not Irish.

It highlighted Dunnes Stores in particular saying it's own brand, St Bernard, fares badly when it comes to DNA tests on pigmeat, with only half of its samples matching the Irish database.

Farmers also say consumers are being misled by labelling, and has called on the Love Irish Food campaign to look at some of its members who use its logo on imported pigmeat.
