Horse Meat Scandal

February 9, 2013 by  

Horse Meat Scandal, A frozen food producer caught up in a scandal over horsemeat found in beef products in the United Kingdom, Sweden and France said Saturday it will sue the Romanian producer it blames for the problem. The French arm of Swedish frozen food firm Findus said it would file a legal complaint Monday against the unnamed Romanian business.

Findus said it had been told that its products were being made with French beef, not Romanian horsemeat.

“We were deceived,” said a Findus France statement. “There are two victims in this affair: Findus and the consumer.”

Also, the British arm of Findus said Saturday said it was considering legal action against suppliers, adding that early results of its internal investigation “strongly suggests” the horsemeat contamination of a beef lasagna product “was not accidental.”

Meanwhile, an emergency meeting was held in London Saturday, as ministers, food inspectors and retailers grappled with a scandal that appears to be spreading across Europe.
