Everton and a number of Premier League clubs reportedly remove meat products from their menus following the horsemeat scandal.

A number of Premier League clubs are reportedly considering whether to remove meat products from their menus following the recent horsemeat scandal.

Caterers Sodexo, who supply food to a host of top flight clubs, including Merseyside outfit Everton, are thought to have pulled pasties, burgers and pies from terrace bars following the revelations that horse DNA has been found in some meats supplied to supermarkets.

"We demanded written assurances from across our supply chain that the products we purchase did not contain horsemeat," the Daily Star quotes a Sodexo spokesman as saying.

"Despite repeated guarantees from our suppliers, our sampling identified frozen beef products which tested positive for equine DNA. This situation is totally unacceptable. We felt the only appropriate response was to withdraw not only this product but all frozen beef products."

Reports have claimed that Everton manager David Moyes and chairman Bill Kenwright are being kept notified of the situation.
