WARSAW, Poland —

Poland's top veterinarian says that traces of horse meat DNA have been found in beef samples taken from three meat processors - the first acknowledgement that the country could be a source of the horse meat that fraudulently ended up in processed meat products sold as beef across Europe.

Deputy National Veterinarian Janusz Zwiazek said Thursday that the DNA was found in three samples out of 121 tested. They came from plants in central Poland. Some 80 more samples are to be tested.

Zwiazek told The Associated Press that all three cases have been reported to the prosecutors.
