PARIS - French President Francois Hollande called for compulsory labeling and traceability of meat used in processed foods in Europe to prevent a repeat of the horse meat scandal.

French and German agriculture ministers said on Friday they agreed on the need for origin labeling and would try to find a deal on meat traceability at a meeting of European farm ministers in Brussels on Monday."There needs to be traceability, that is what I want from talks on a European level," Hollande said on Saturday.
