Horsemeat Found In Taco Bell UK Beef In Latest Tests

Britain’s food regulator said horsemeat had been found in beef products at Taco Bell fast food outlets, the first time it has been discovered on sale in British restaurants since the scandal broke in January.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said on Friday it had conducted 1,797 tests over the last seven days, over 99 percent of which had come back negative for horsemeat levels at or above 1 percent.

Tex-Mex fast-food chain Taco Bell, owned by U.S. firm Yum Brands Inc, has three outlets in the UK.

“Some batches of ground beef supplied to us from one supplier in Europe tested positive for horsemeat,” said Taco Bell UK in a statement.
