The Food Standards Agency in the UK confirmed yesterday that ready made Findus Beef Lasagne was found to contain 99% horse meat. Ya…99% is pretty much all hey so they may as well say the whole damn thing is made of horse meat [insert horse sound here]. Government food officials have ordered big chain stores like Tesco’s to remove the products from shelves. The Findus product comes from a French supplier.
Anyways…i did a quick Google search and today i learned that they sell Findus right here in SA.
Neigh you say?
Ok now before you start having a frothy let me just say that ONLY the Beef Lasagne has been found to contain the horse meat and from what i can gather they don’t have that in their product list on the SA website. Only Teriyaki Beef.
Anyways here’s the story from The Independant.
“Findus beef lasagne ready meals were up to 100 per cent made from horse meat, Government food officials revealed tonight.
Some of the popular frozen meals contained entirely horse and not beef, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) confirmed as it disclosed the latest flagrant breech of food rules.
Shoppers who bought the products, made by the French food supplier Comigel on behalf of Findus, have been warned not to eat them.” [More HERE]
Last week Burger King dumped million of burgers after it was discovered that meat products from Irish supplier Silvercrest was found to contain horse meat.
