Scandal widens over horse meat-tainted food

In Britain and Sweden, horse meat is being passed off as beef in burgers as well as frozen products.

    The food scandal persists over horse meat being passed off as beef.
     
    This time it is frozen lasagne: the meat in some cases was found to be more than 60 percent horse.
     
    The ready meals were made in Luxembourg for the Swedish firm Findus.
     
    Packets of lasagne have been withdrawn in Sweden as well as in the UK.
