Horsemeat found in pasta of German supermarket chain
Copenhagen: German supermarket chain Lidl in Denmark has found traces of horse meat in a pasta dish, the supermarket has announced.
A pasta dish called Combino Penne Bolognese from the manufacturer Copack has been found containing horse meat, reported Xinhua citing Lidl.
Lidl said late Monday that the product is now being withdrawn from the market, and customers who still have the product can get a refund. But the chain emphasised that there is no health risk in connection with the product.
"It is very regrettable, especially for consumers," said Henry Brandes, communication manager at Lidl, in comments made to Danish news agency Ritzau.
"This is a product purchased through Germany, so here in Denmark we have no direct contact with the manufacturer," he explained.
