Horse Meat Lasagnes

February 9, 2013 by  

Horse Meat Lasagnes, Environment Secretary Owen Paterson is to hold a horse meat summit with the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and retailers after it emerged Findus beef lasagnes may have been contaminated since August.

The frozen food company reiterated its apology as the FSA ordered firms to carry out tests on all processed beef foods.

Findus UK confirmed it carried out a full product recall on Monday, two days before DNA tests found some of its lasagnes contained up to 100% horse meat.

The Trading Standards Institute said the discovery of such high levels of horse meat suggested “deliberate fraudulent activity”.

Prime Minister David Cameron said it was a “very shocking story, it’s completely unacceptable” as Scotland Yard said officers had met with the FSA over the scandal.

The force added there is no official police investigation.

And last night discount chain Aldi said tests on its Today’s Special frozen beef lasagne and Today’s Special frozen spaghetti bolognese, which are produced by the same French supplier, Comigel, were found to contain between 30% and 100% horse meat.

Politicians and food safety experts played down the risk to human health, with Mr Cameron, speaking in Brussels, saying it was not about food safety but accurate food labelling and the industry would have to work hard to restore confidence.
