Waitrose, Co-op remove some burgers as a precaution
Saturday 26th January 2013, 1:00PM GMT.
FROZEN burgers sold by Waitrose and the Co-op have been removed as a precautionary measure after horse DNA was found in some Tesco and Iceland products earlier this month.
Six lines of frozen burgers sold by Waitrose have been taken from the freezers.
A Co-op spokesman confirmed it had removed three lines of frozen burgers.
Waitrose said it hoped they would be back on sale soon.
Sandpiper operates Iceland stores locally and a spokesman said none of the affected products was ever on sale in them.
