(Reuters) – Tesco said on Wednesday it had pulled its own-brand frozen spaghetti bolognese from its stores as a precaution after the manufacturer Findus withdrew a beef product on the advice of its supplier.

The product withdrawals follow revelations that beef products sold at some of Britain’s major supermarkets and chain Burger King contained horsemeat. This has prompted investigations into suppliers.

Findus removed its beef lasagne on the advice of its supplier, which also produces Tesco’s Everyday Value spaghetti bolognese. It did not name the supplier, which Tesco said was France ‘s Comigel.
