Lebanese food importer pulls European frozen meals over horsemeat scandal
- Lebanon: Wednesday, February 13 - 2013 at 03:05
Gabriel Bocti, the Lebanese firm that imports European frozen food meals found to contain horsemeat, has pulled the mislabelled 'beef' products from local supermarket shelves, The Daily Star has reported. Six European grocery chains across Europe recalled frozen meals manufactured by Sweden's Findus that were labelled as 100% beef after the company's French meat supplier warned British retailers that certain products were found to contain between 60% to 100% horsemeat. "We have retrieved the products from the two or three stores we distributed them to and can guarantee that the situation [in Europe] does not concern the Findus products we import to Lebanon," said product manager at Gabriel Bocti, Reine Daoud.
