Swiss supermarket giant Coop said that it had found horsemeat in its own-brand frozen lasagna produced by Comigel, the French firm at the heart of a Europewide food scandal. Earlier Wednesday, the Coop group published a statement on its website saying it had turned to independent testers amid concerns that products labelled as beef could contain horsemeat. Eating horsemeat is relatively common in Switzerland, unlike in Britain, where it is a taboo, meaning concerns on the horsemeat scandal in Switzerland have focussed on alleged labelling fraud.
