Horsemeat found in pasta in Como supermarket

Health officials seize over 200 kilograms of meat from company

Horsemeat found in pasta in Como supermarket

Como, March 1 - Horsemeat was found in pasta being sold as veal- and beef-filled in a Como supermarket on Friday, the Italian Health Ministry said. The fresh, stuffed pasta was pulled from grocery store refrigerators and Milan health officials seized over 200 kilograms of meat from the company Marchioness Ltd after tests proved positive for horse DNA in the brand's pre-packaged food. A widening scandal that began early February has been dubbed Horsegate and has spread to Norway, Russia, Italy, France, and Spain after British food company Findus (no relation to Italy's Findus) began to recall prepared products, including lasagna, after discovering it was made with horsemeat rather than beef as promised on the package.
