London - The horse flesh contamination scandal saw a new twist today as the EU ordered a raft of emergency foodstuff bans.
From midnight tonight saddle of lamb is banned from all sales outlets along with 'polluted' items on greengrocery shelves.
"We've been told to take precautionary measures and remove some suspect radishes," a government food inspector explained, "masquerading in supermarket pickle aisles as horseradish sauce."
Also off to landfill are frozen fish fingers after tests at Insanesburys confirmed they are most probably contaminated by 'cheap end' marine food chain products 'like native seahorse'.
Today's ban could also spread to Aintree Racecourse, home of the Grand National, and to the UK monthly sports periodical Whorse And Hound.
Commenting on the crisis a spokesperson for the Jockey Club said 'WTF?' this morning.
A pound of whorseflesh retails around 66p.
