Horsemeat found in more products from Birds Eye, Brakes, Taco Bell and IKEA
The latest batch of test results from the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has revealed five more beef products contaminated with horsemeat.
The products, from the companies Birds Eye, Brakes and Taco Bell, are:
- Birds Eye - Traditional Spaghetti Bolognese
- Birds Eye - Beef Lasagne
- Brakes - Spicy minced beef skewer
- Brakes/Creative Foods - Lasagne
- Taco Bell - Ground beef
Brakes has already withdrawn other beef products, including steak and kidney pie, beef and onion pie, steak and kidney suet pudding and beef Italian meatballs, as a precautionary measure. The company issued a statement saying "Brakes will continue to work tirelessly with and alongside the industry on investigating and resolving this issue. We are determined to do everything within our control to protect our customers from this issue in the future."

A Taco Bell spokesman said in response to the findings "We immediately withdrew ground beef from sale in our restaurants, discontinued purchase of that meat, and contacted the Food Standards Agency with this information."
Last week IKEA withdrew meatballs and this week found "indications of horse DNA" in its wiener sausages in results outside of the FSA testing programme. These products have since been removed from sale in the UK.
The FSA has now received 5430 test results, including the 1797 that have arrived this week. 99% of the test results have so far returned as negative for horsemeat, at the 1% threshold limit.
