French stores pull beef dishes as horse meat scandal widens
epa03582216 A pedestrian walks past a retail store belonging to frozen foods chain Picard in Paris, France, 13 February 2013. Picard, the largest frozen food chain in France, has removed its beef-based goods including lasagna following pan-European frozen meal scandal in which it was discovered that horse meat was being sold as beef. Picard's decision comes only a few days after frozen foods giant, Findus, recalled its beef-based products supplied by Comigel after DNA tests showed traces of horse meat ranging from 60 to 100 percent in their products.
