Lansing Company's Detection Tests Sell Well

Posted:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A Lansing manufacturer of animal and food safety products is seeing increased sales of its meat testing kits as a result of the global horse meat scandal.

MLive.com reports that Neogen Corp.'s kits can detect the presence of different species in uncooked meats and meat products. Tests cost about $12 each. They can detect horse, cow, pig, poultry and sheep within 30 minutes.

Neogen sells the kits to grocery chains, food-service companies and labs that test for food processors, but it does not sell to the public.

The company does not provide sales figures but officials say most of its kits are being sold in Europe, because of the meat scandal there. Some foods advertised as 100 percent beef have been found with horse meat.
