Beef burgers packed with turkey and sheep and pollock being sold as haddock.

Pirate FM can reveal some of the food that could have ended up on our plates in Cornwall.

Six samples have failed checks on standards in the last 18 months.

In one beef product tested, there was no beef at all.

Jane Tomlinson is the Quality Standards Animal Health team manager at the Council.

She said: "If you can buy local meat from a local butcher that's come from the local farm, that is actually taking the chances of food fraud happening ever so much so. From a consumer point of view, we'd also ask people to change attitudes, if you like, and be aware of cheap food because if it seems too good to be true it probably is."
