Food Products Sold by Aldi Contain Horsemeat? Yes, But Not in US

January 5, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Food products sold by Aldi were found to contain horsemeat, but the continuation didn’t reach Aldi stores in the United States.

In early 2013, Aldi withdrew two beef products from stores in the United Kingdom after tests determined that the two products had 30 percent to 100 percent horse meat.

The products were “Today’s Special Frozen Spaghetti Bolognese” and “Today’s  Special Frozen Beef Lasagne.”

The products were supplied from French supplier Comigel.

Other food vendors in  Europe also found similar contamination around the same time.

However, contrary to some reports, the continuation didn’t involve any Aldi USA stores.
