Slaughterhouse right of appeal JR against FSA unfit meat decisions, fails.

In R (on the application of the Association of Independent Meat Suppliers and another) v Food Standards Agency [2015] EWHC 1896 (Admin), Simon J sitting in the Admin Court (judgment 2.7.15) has found that neither the governing EU Regulations, nor the EU Charter nor the European Convention (A1P1) required the Food Standards Authority to afford any right of appeal to the owners of an expensive bull carcase found, at the slaughterhouse, to be unfit for human consumption and thus disposed of as worthless animal by-product.

Adam Heppinstall appeared for the FSA.
