Nestle withdraws beef products after horse DNA found

LONDON - Nestle, the world's biggest food company, removed beef pasta meals from shelves in Italy and Spain on Monday after tests revealed traces of horse DNA above 1 percent, the Financial Times online reported, citing a company statement.
Swiss-based Nestle, which just last week said products under its labels were not affected by the escalating horse-meat scandal, said it had informed the authorities, the FT reported.
Nestle was not immediately available for comment.
