Paris: Around 150 kilogrammes of the suspect Polish beef that has sparked a health scare in several EU countries was sold to consumers in France, the French agriculture ministry said on Friday.

The meat was "sold to the consumer notably through butcher's shops" which were now attempting to alert customers, a statement said. In total France imported 795kg of the meat, from a Polish slaughterhouse where allegedly sick cows were butchered.
