ITV News' correspondent Damon Green reports from the Comigel food factory in Luxembourg, where Findus Beef Lasagnes are made:
Food manufacturer Findus Sweden said it recalled thousands of packets of frozen "beef lasagne" after tests showed they contained horsemeat.
Findus in Britain began a recall from retailers earlier in the week, on advice from its supplier Comigel.
Findus in Sweden had purchased frozen lasagnes from a Comigel factory in Luxembourg.
Findus Sweden said it recalled some 20,000 packages of its single-portion frozen lasagnes.
Food supplier Comigel has its headquarters in Metz, France and a processing plant just over the border in Luxembourg.
Tesco and Aldi have withdrawn a range of ready meals produced at the factory.
Comigel alerted Findus and Aldi that their products "do not conform to specification" on Monday.
Boss Erick Leharge, 53, has so far refused to comment.

Steve Wearne, reacting after meat in Findus beef lasagne was found to include up to 100% horse meat, denied the FSA should share a portion of the blame for the fall in standards.
