The world’s biggest food and drinks maker Nestle SA has become the latest company to pull some of its products off European shelves after they were found to contain undeclared horse meat.

This move comes on the heels of Wal-Mart’s British subsidiary Asda who also yanked products from its shelves last week.

Switzerland-based Nestle SA said in a statement late Monday (Feb. 18) that it withdrew some of its beef pasta ready meals from sale after tests conducted two days earlier detected horse DNA.

“We are now suspending deliveries of all our finished products produced using beef supplied by a German firm, H.J. Schypke, a subcontractor of one of our suppliers, JBS Toledo N.V.,” Nestle noted.

Nestle said it increased its surveillance after reports emerged last month of mislabeled products being sold in Britain. Click here to read more from our partners at TheCityWire.com.
