The head of French food producer Comigel said Sunday the company had been "fooled" by suppliers providing horsemeat as beef and vowed to seek compensation.

"We were victims and it's now clear that the problem was not with Findus nor with Comigel," Erick Lehagre told AFP, after the Nordic branch of frozen food giant Findus said it planned to sue Comigel and its suppliers because horsemeat was found in its products marked as containing beef.
