No meat found in Icelandic beef pies

Tests carried out by the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority (MAST) have found there was no meat at all in some Icelandic beef pies, despite being labelled as containing 30 percent beef.

Meat inspector Kjartan Hreinsson says it appeared to be some kind of vegetable matter.

Magnús Nielsson, co-owner of Gæðakokkar in Borgarnes, the company which produces the pies, says that he is dumbfounded.

He has said that the testing must have been inaccurate as his company buys prime beef and use beef stock to make them.

These days, I think I would be relieved that it was just "some sort of vegetable matter" instead of "some sort of meat".
