Swedish food giant Findus and French meat supplier Spanghero said Saturday they were ready to file suit in a scandal where horsemeat has turned up in products labelled beef.
"We were deceived," the managing director of Findus France, Matthieu Lambeaux, said in a statement. "We will file a complaint against 'X' from Monday."
"X" is a legal concept used in France when the persons responsible for an alleged violation are not known.
Spanghero, the French supplier of meat for Findus lasagna products, said Saturday it was ready to sue the Romanian source of its meat.
