A company accused of supplying halal burgers containing pork to schools across the city has said independent tests have revealed it has done nothing wrong.
Leicester City Council withdrew a lamb burger supplied to 19 schools by Doncaster-based Paragon Quality Foods last month after it claimed that tests showed up to 50 per cent pork in a sample burger.
Leicester firm ESPO conducted the tests on behalf of the city council.
However, a spokesman for Paragon Quality Foods said today that results from an unnamed independent specialist showed that the burger did not contain any pork.
