Horse meat lasagna recalled in Sweden

[February 08, 2013]  STOCKHOLM (AP) -- Frozen-food company Findus is recalling beef lasagna meals in Sweden after tests confirmed the products contained horse meat.

The move follows a similar recall earlier this week in Britain amid a widening scandal surrounding the use of horse meat and the mislabeling of meat products in Europe.

Henrik Nyberg, product manager for Findus in the Nordics countries, said about 20,000 frozen lasagna meals are being recalled in Sweden.

Nyberg told The Associated Press that the products don't pose any food safety risk, and were recalled solely because they had been mislabeled.

Though eating horse meat is not generally a health risk, the incidents have triggered disgust in Britain and Ireland, where horse meat is not traditionally eaten.
