Findus to take legal action against its suppliers

Findus has said it will be taking legal action against its suppliers, after horsemeat was found in several of its beef products. In a statement, the frozen food company said:

Findus is taking legal advice about the grounds for pursuing a case against its suppliers, regarding what they believe is their suppliers’ failure to meet contractual obligations about product integrity.

The early results from Findus UK’s internal investigation strongly suggests that the horsemeat contamination in Beef Lasagne was not accidental.
