Further 6 products containing horsemeat identified

The Food Standards Agency released the latest tranche of test results submitted by the food industry today. They showed that out of 1,133 meat products checked, only six - including Sodexo's - were positive for horse.

In this second wave of tests, the products linked to samples showing horse DNA were:

  • Sodexo's beef burgers, minced beef and halal minced beef
  • Asda's chilled beef bolognese sauce
  • Whitbread Group lasagne and beef burger

Earlier today Birds Eye withdrew three products from sale in the UK as a precaution after horsemeat was found in a product sold in Belgium.
