*R (on the application of Newby Foods Ltd) v Foods Standards Agency

European Union – Public health. On the proper interpretation of EU law, the appellant meat and poultry manufacturer's products fell to be categorised as mechanically separated meat (MSM) within point 1.14 of Annex 1 to Regulation (EC) No 853/2004. Accordingly, the Supreme Court dismissed the appellant's appeal against Court of Appeal, Civil Division's decision, that had upheld the respondent Food Standards Agency's moratorium that desinewed meat could only be produced from residual meat on chicken and pork bones if it were classified and labelled as MSM.
