The Romanian horsemeat used in French-supplied frozen 'beef' products 'appeared to be a fraud', France’s consumer affairs minister said on the 10 February 2013, as the horsemeat scandal that erupted the previous week in the United Kingdom reverberated across the continent.
France’s biggest supermarket chains removed more of their own-label and Findus-branded processed dishes from their shelves. Some Findus lasagne products tested in the UK were found to contain more than 60% horsemeat.

EU agriculture and food safety ministers discussed the horsemeat scandal that had reportedly affected up to 16 countries on the 13 February 2013.
