The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) are advising people not to eat Findus frozen, beef Lasagne after some samples in the UK were found to include a minimum of 60 per cent equine DNA.
The FSAI are still investigating whether or not this particular product is sold in the Republic, and are advising Irish consumers not to eat the product if they find it in their freezers.
Some of the samples of the same product contained more than 90 per cent horse meat
It was revealed last night.
This is just the latest of an ongoing series of discoveries of horse meat in produce sold on both the Irish and UK markets.
The first case to hit national headlines was when Tesco in the UK and Ireland had to withdraw their value beefburger range in early January after tests by the FSAI revealed a horse meat content of around 29 per cent.
Since then this scandal has grown legs, with many other supermarkets withdrawing products and some food processing plants testing positive for horse DNA.
However, the FSAI and their UK counterparts are still trying to get to the bottom of the fiasco and who is to blame for the contamination.
