Horse-meat lasagne shelved in Iceland

Jersey News from ITV Channel Television - lasagnes

Findus UK lasagnes containing horse-meat have been taken off the supermarket shelves in Jersey.

The frozen food company confirmed that horse-meat has been found in its beef lasagne.

Both Iceland - which is owned by Sandpiper CI, - and Co-op has confirmed it stopped selling the frozen lasagnes.

The Co-op says anyone who has bought the product can return it and get a full refund.

Tests are also being undertaken on all Co-op own-brand products which contain beef.

Findus says the product was made by a third-party supplier and has apologised to its customers.

The Food Standards Agency said that some of the Findus samples consisted of between 60 and 100% horsemeat, but added there was no evidence it was a food safety risk.

I've eaten horse meat steaks in both France and Holland, nothing wrong with it provided is cooked properly (by which I mean not still galloping) it's tender and tasty and LEANER than cow or bull.

If you've bought one of these lasagnas and don't fancy it give it to your neigh - bour! Seriously though, if I'd paid for a packet of butter and got margarine I would feel cheated. Beef lasagne should be made of dead cow, not horse.

The main scandal about this issue is not what sort of meat is in the pies -it is where the meat came from I have horses and they are treated (legally) with drugs that are illegal for animals farmed to be eaten. Two of my horses had scans in the UK involving radioactive istopes - one was cremated and the other is still alive. I am sure you don't want to feed radioactive meat to your kiddies. Best shop at a proper butcher

If Findus used horsemeat instead of beef, the mind boggles as to what they made the Béchamel sauce out of...

Shergar pie or Lasagne hmmm not my cup of tea i like my moo and piggy meat, its not just the filler its the rubbish they put in these products there doesnt seem to be any trail back to origin of these products, dodgy meat in huge frozen blocks mechanically reclaimed hooves ears and tails all ground up i'm not a veggie and if soya and quorn products was cheaper i would consider a meatless diet as i do love my bacon and red dob sarnies at the wekend :o) it has put me off anything mass produced and prepared in a factory as apposed to a kitchen by a cook or chef!
