Nestlé Pulls Beef Products With Horse DNA From Italy, Spain, And France

February 19, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Nestlé SA withdrew some of its beef pasta meals from the market in Italy, Spain, and France after traces of horse DNA were found in these products. More than 1 percent horse DNA was found in two products following tests, the company said. Nestlé also said it was putting on hold deliveries of finished products using beef supplied by JBS Toledo N.V.'s subcontractor H.J. Schypke. Also, the company said these products posed no food safety risks and that the withdrawals would not impact the company's financial performance.
