Findus beef lasagne ready meal was up to 100 per cent horse meat
Ready meals sold as beef products by some of Britainís biggest supermarkets contained up to 100 per cent horse meat, the Food Standards Agency has said.

Findus said it did not know how long the product had been on the shelves, but admitted that Comigel, based in Metz, north-east France, had been supplying meat for its lasagnes for more than two years.

Findus, one of the most popular brands of frozen foods, has withdrawn 180,000 lasagnes from sale after carrying out tests on meals from a French supplier that had raised concerns.

The frozen food company found that 11 out of 18 ready meals, which were advertised as containing 100 per cent beef, were actually between 60 per cent and 100 per cent horse meat. The lasagne was sold by Tesco, Asda and Morrisons.

Findus said it did not know how long the product had been on the shelves, but admitted that Comigel, based in Metz, north-east France, had been supplying meat for its lasagnes for more than two years.

Samples are now being tested for bute, a painkiller given to horses which can lead to serious blood disorders. The Food Standards Agency urged anyone who bought the products to return them to retailers, who will give them a full refund.

Tesco also withdrew its Everyday Value spaghetti bolognese, which it said had been supplied by the same plant in France for five months. Aldi has withdrawn some of its frozen ready meal lines.

Interesting to note that BEEF is meat taken from cows or bulls;

Not Horses...

You can eat Horsemeat but!!

bute, a painkiller given to horses which can lead to serious blood disorders.

Now that is worrying...

It has been said that if we knew what we were eating .... we would not have anything to eat.

In 1960's my Husband delivered Walls Bacon with Maggots on....he stayed in the job two weeks.

The Chinese have been mixing grass with tea leaves.

A person saw another piddle on the vegatables at the Market.... so wash your Toms.
