'Restore confidence in halal food'
by Fiona Dryden
Leicester City Council will not reveal results of further tests taken on a halal lamb burger believed to contain pork because of an on-going investigation.
The council withdrew the halal burgers supplied to 19 schools by Doncaster-based Paragon Quality Foods in April after it claimed tests showed up to 50 per cent pork in a sample burger.
However, this was disputed by the Yorkshire firm which claimed "independent" tests it commissioned revealed the burger did not contain any pork.
