Traces Of Horsemeat Forcing Nestle To Recall Buitoni Beef Ravioli, Beef Tortellini, And Other Products

The recalls continue.  Food giant Nestle is recalling several products because traces of horsemeat have been found in some of the items.

Buitoni Beef Ravioli and Buitoni Beef Tortellini are being pulled from store shelves in Italy and Spain.  Nestle says they are also recalling a lasagna product made available to French caterers.  It is not believed that any of the products made it to the United States.

Being questioned is more than 750 tons of horsemeat from J.B.S Toledo N.V. subsidiary H.J Schypke that were labelled as “beef.”  A spokesman for Nestle says public health was never compromised as a result.

The incident comes on the heels of a ban imposed by the French government on food company Spanghero, who had horsemeat in some of their products as well.

While many people are highly offended by the findings, it is important to note that in some countries eating horsemeat is not considered unusual.

In the latest case the determination is still being made whether the labels were knowingly altered or whether it was the result of human error.  If it was intentional criminal penalties could follow.
