Nestle, the world's biggest food company, has removed beef pasta meals from shelves in Italy and Spain after tests revealed traces of horse DNA.
The Swiss-based firm has halted deliveries of products containing meat from a German supplier.
A spokesman for the company said levels of horse DNA were very low, but above 1%.
