The Food Standards Agency (FSA) in the UK is to publish results of food DNA tests today, in light of the horsemeat scandal.

It is expected that results from 30% of retailers and food businesses, which have tested thousands of products for horse DNA, will reveal the results at midday.

Despite the progress, Downing Street officials criticised UK supermarkets for not being open enough about the horsemeat scandal.
