Horse meat scandal update

C1000 lasagne

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

C1000 takes lasagna off the shelves

Added: Thursday, February 14, 2013, 17:35

Supermarket corporation C1000 is immediately taking their lasagna bolognese (400 gram) off the shelves, because it contains horse meat. The label says that the product is made with one hundred percent beef, but research proves otherwise.

Previously, C1000 was guaranteed by its suppliers that there was no horse meat in any product. Now that appears to be untrue. A spokesman for the supermarket group said they did not know how this happened. “Either we had not asked all our suppliers to provide guarantees, but I can not imagine that. Or there is something else going on.” The company will ask their suppliers.

C1000 is not the first company to take back products because of incorrect information on the labels. Other Dutch supermarkets including Boni, Coop, Plus and Jumbo announced earlier lasagna recalls. In Britain, France and Germany products taken off the shelves as well because of horse meat.

Horse meat is a lot cheaper than beef.
