Tesco pulls value bolognese amid new meat fears

Frozen spaghetti and lasagne meals have been stripped from supermarket shelves as fears over contaminated meat products spread.

Tesco and discount chain Aldi revealed they have withdrawn a range of ready meals produced by French food supplier Comigel, including Tesco's Everyday Value Spaghetti Bolognese.

The move follows concern over contamination of products with horsemeat.

A Tesco spokesman said it took the step as a precaution after Findus beef lasagne was removed from sale.

"Following the withdrawal of Findus beef lasagne, which is produced by Comigel, we have decided to withdraw our frozen Everyday Value Spaghetti Bolognese, which is produced at the same site, as a precautionary measure," the Tesco spokesman said.
