That link Iains, is to an article with a question mark at the end (which doesn't of course appear in the link). And it is mainly about US multinationals applying different standards to their products in Eastern and Western Europe. It is not about locally produced food. And the horsemeat issue (not right to call it a scandal, horsemeat is as you say not harmful, and in certain countries is the most expensive item on the menu) was an issue of non-compliance by UK and Irish and Romanian producers which was detected by the EU testing regime.
