The article reports that grocery retailer Asda has been forced to withdraw packs of lamb from store shelves in Great Britain after the meat from 142 animals was found to contain a drug for treating parasites. The affected meat, which includes nearly all types of cut, was supplied by Welsh Country Foods in packs displaying dates between October 12 and 16, 2007. The sheep had been treated with Doramectin prior to being sold before the meat withdrawal period had passed.
