Horse meat was found in two of Nestle’s pasta/beef products, forcing a recall in grocery shops across Italy and Spain.
The company issued tests after finding horse meat in British foods and ‘traces’ of horse DNA in beef supplied by a German company called H. J. Schypke.
Before this announcement, the horse meat debacle had already spanned across the Continental Europe. Nestlé, however, assured Americans that products in the States are still safe.
“Nestlé U.S.A. does not use meat sourced from Europe,” a company statement said. “Additionally, U.S.D.A. meat inspectors are in all processing plants and also have responsibility to oversee any imported meat. We have also requested and received confirmation from all our meat suppliers that they do not provide Nestlé U.S.A. with any meat from the affected countries and companies.”
