French firm says no health risk from horsemeat lasagne

The French food company that supplied frozen lasagne found to contain up to 100 percent horsemeat to British supermarkets said Friday the dishes presented no health risk.

In its first reaction to the scandal, Comigel said it had withdrawn all products from a meat supplier who had provided it with horsemeat instead of beef but said veterinary services in France and Luxembourg had said the "horsemeat evidence in question does not raise any public health issue".
