FRANCE-FOOD-HORSEMEAT

A butcher arranges his stand at a supermarket in Herouville Saint-Clair, northwestern France, on February 26, 2013. A Europe-wide food fraud scandal over horsemeat sold as beef emerged in mid-January when Irish authorities found traces of horse in beefburgers made by firms in Ireland and Britain and sold in supermarket chains including Tesco and Aldi. The scandal intensified earlier this month when Comigel -- a French frozen meal maker which bought 500 tonnes of mislabelled horsemeat from Spanghero -- alerted Findus to the presence of horsemeat in the meals it had made for the food giant and which were on sale in Britain.
