Nestle issues food recall after DNA testing reveals horse meat in products labeled as beef
Swiss food company Nestle issued a voluntary recall of all products featuring beef from German meat supplier H.J. Schypke after DNA testing revealed “traces of horse DNA,” according to a report from CNN.
This revelation comes on the heels of reports of unauthorized and mislabeled horse meat discovered in a variety of foods found in restaurants and supermarkets in European countries including Britain, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany and Ireland. So far, there is no indication that the recall has affected products sold in the United States.
Affected Nestle products include Buitoni Beef Ravioli and Beef Tortellini sold in Italy and Spain, as well as a type of lasagna sold to French catering businesses.
