After horse meat was found in 11 of 18 tested lasagna products, the UK's Food Standards Agency ordered further testing of "all beef products, such as beef burgers, meatballs and lasagna."

Horse meat made up more than half of the "beef" in some recalled beef lasagna products, food safety authorities in the United Kingdom said Thursday. It was the latest revelation in a growing scandal surrounding the use of horse meat and the mislabeling of meat products in Europe.
Frozen-food company Findus recalled their beef lasagna meals earlier this week after French supplier Comigel raised concerns that the products didn't "conform to specification." The UK Food Standards Agency said the lasagnas were tested as part of an ongoing investigation into mislabeled meat.
