ISLANDERS may unwittingly have been eating horseflesh.
Following the revelation that Findus Beef Lasagne was, in some cases, 100% horse, two local stores have withdrawn the product from sale.
Both the Co-op and Sandpiper, which sold it via Checkers Xpress, Food Hall and Iceland outlets, said they had until recently stocked the product.
The Co-op withdrew the items on Monday and Sandpiper on Tuesday.
A Sandpiper spokesman said: ‘I do not know why it is only just being reported in the media today [Friday] – we were advised by our suppliers on Tuesday to remove the product.’
- The Co-Op is offering a full refund to customers who have brought a Findus Beef Lasagne. Simply return it to the store.
