Tesco Everyday Value Spaghetti Bolognese

Some Tesco Everyday Value Spaghetti Bolognese contains 60% horsemeat, DNA tests by the retailer have found.

The meal, withdrawn from sale last Tuesday, was made at the same French factory producing Findus beef lasagne, at the centre of a current controversy.

The results came as Environment Secretary Owen Paterson outlined to MPs compulsory content testing for all UK processed meat producers and retailers.

Romania has rejected claims the contamination came from its abattoirs.
