Findus beef lasagne contained up to 100% horsemeat, FSA says

Findus beef lasagne contained up to 100% horsemeat, FSA says

The meat of some beef lasagne products recalled by Findus earlier this week was 100% horsemeat, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has said.

On Monday Findus withdrew from retailers its beef lasagne in 320g, 360g and 500g sizes as a precaution.

Environment Secretary Owen Paterson said the findings were "completely unacceptable", but Findus said it did not believe it was a food safety issue.

The FSA said companies would now be required to test their beef products.

"In order to get to the bottom of this, we're going to be requiring every company to test every product line," Catherine Brown, the FSA's chief executive, told the BBC.

1. What, pray tell, is the acceptable percentage of horse meat in lasagna?

I hope to hell it's a problem limited to the British Empire.
