The French branch of the Swedish frozen-food company Findus said Saturday they will sue an unidentified Romanian beef producer after horsemeat was found in beef products.

According to a report by CNN, "Findus said it had been told that its products were being made with French beef, not Romanian horsemeat."

The British branch of Findus has conducted its own tests on its beef-products, which may have shown that the horsemeat found in a beef lasagna was intentional, according to CNN

The British lasagna product contained at least 60 percent horsemeat. While horsemeat is generally not a health risk, the mislabeling of food products has caused great disgust, and new food testing standards will be put in place, according to the Huffington Post.
