Just as we thought that food manufacturers had managed to reign in their horsemeat habit, it has emerged that canned beef sold by Home Bargains and Quality Save contains between 1% and 5% horse DNA.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) confirmed horse DNA had been found in 320g packs of Food Hall Sliced Beef in Rich Gravy.

The horse DNA was discovered through tests conducted by Lancashire County Council, and the product has now been withdrawn from stores.

The Food Hall Sliced Beef in Rich Gravy was manufactured in Romania.

The batch tested had a best before date of January 2016 and a code of 13.04.C. The FSA has said any cans of the product can be returned.
