Horsemeat scandal: Birds Eye withdraws UK ready meals
Birds Eye has withdrawn three beef ready meals from supermarkets in the UK and Ireland as a precaution after horse DNA was found in a product in Belgium.
Birds Eye said its chilli con carne had tested positive for 2% horse DNA.
Meanwhile, the Food Standards Agency has announced the results of 1,133 new tests on a range of beef products.
There were six positive tests for horse DNA at a level of greater than 1% - all on products which have already been withdrawn.
