The Nestle food corporation has recalled all products in Italy and Spain that include beef in the ingredients list after horse meat was found in the meals. The company stressed that there are no recalls for its beef products sold in America. The Swiss-based company is recalling two chilled pasta products – Buitoni Beef Ravioli and Beef Tortellini – plus a lasagna product sold to French catering businesses.
According to the company, its own tests have found traces of horse DNA in two products made from beef supplied by H.J. Schypke. The levels found are above the one percent threshold the United Kingdom’s Food Safety Agency uses to indicate likely adulteration or gross negligence. The company says while there is no food safety issue, the mislabeling of products means they fail to meet the very high standards consumers expect from the company.
