Title牛丸無牛 麵店聞訊即撤供應商
Description彈牙且牛肉味甚濃的牛丸有機會完全不含牛肉成分,甚至竟是豬肉。有本港收費電視台委託香港城市大學測試發現,檢驗的十二個散裝牛丸樣本中,至少兩個未能驗出牛肉成分,顯示內含牛肉「少到睇唔到」,有關牛丸反而含有豬肉,「牛丸無牛」可能違反《商品說明條例》或《公眾衞生及市政條例》。

TitleMeat test cuts out the waiting
DescriptionA quick test that tells the difference between horse-meat and other cuts has been devised by the
team lead by Prof Cheng Shuk-han, City University of Hong Kong. Meat ingredients claimed on food labels can be verified by DNA extraction from the food sample, then multiplication of the DNA by molecular biotechnology and then testing on the the test paper.
