Asda 'belt-and-braces approach' over horse DNA

As you'd expect we are withdrawing the Beef Bolognese sauce from our shelves. We are taking a belt-and-braces approach so, in addition, as a precaution we're also withdrawing three other beef-based products produced by the same supplier.

We have no positive test results for horse DNA in any of these products, but we feel it is the right thing to withdraw them anyway.

We're very sorry if this ongoing situation is causing our customers any upset or inconvenience. We, along with the rest of the industry, are working hard to ensure they can have complete confidence in the food they buy.
