      I am sure everybody still remembers the horse meat scandal which made headlines all
      over Europe in 2013. Especially deep-frozen products with minced meat labelled as
      beef were found to contain horse meat. The attention that this food scandal attracted
      in the media and society was tremendous. The legal relevance of the cases that followed
      in the different EU Member States is no less interesting.
