German pork sold as ‘Lincolnshire sausages’ in new labelling row

Lincolnshire’ sausages sold by one of Britain’s most famous food brands are actually made with frozen pork from Germany, a Sunday Telegraph investigation reveals.

Walls, a company which boasts its sausages have been ‘savoured’ by British households for more than 200 years, has admitted now sourcing at least half its meat from intensive pig farms on the Continent. It neglects to mention the fact on packs including Lincolnshire and Cumberland sausages.

The disclosure follows inquiries by The Sunday Telegraph which is campaigning for clear labelling on the food we eat. Tesco, Britain’s biggest supermarket, has also admitted to The Sunday Telegraph that the meat in its ‘standard’ Lincolnshire and Cumberland sausage range is sourced from all over Europe and could come from as far as Poland more than 1,000 miles away.
