Shergar Lasagne

The horse meat scandal refuses to go away, Findus have now been caught up in it with the revelation that their "beef" lasagne contains up to 100% horse meat!

Unsurprisingly they have withdrawn the product from sale, and have issued an apology.

The offending product was made by French food supplier Comigel.

Criminal activity is suspected, and whilst saying that there was no evidence the horsemeat was unsafe, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has ordered it be tested for traces of an equine drug which is harmful to humans (phenylbutazone).

All food companies have now been ordered to test their beef products.

Let's see what comes out of the woodwork!

The solution is simple, stop buying ready made meals produced in factories and use only fresh ingredients from trusted local butchers.
