“We have been testing all beef products since the horsemeat issue began,” said Lidl Sweden spokeswoman Caroline Forsshell. She said the products had been made by a German supplier.
The goulash in Finland was produced by German group Dreistern-Konserven GmbH & Co, Lidl Finland said in a statement.
Dreistern-Konserven on Friday announced horse DNA was detected in cans of its ‘Rindergulasch’ product.
Europe’s horsemeat scandal, which has triggered recalls of ready meals and damaged confidence in the region’s vast and complex food industry, erupted last month when tests carried out in Ireland revealed that beef products contained horsemeat.
