“Our tests have found traces of horse DNA in two products made from beef supplied by H.J. Schypke,” Nestle said in a statement. “The levels found are above the one percent threshold the U.K.’s Food Safety Agency uses to indicate likely adulteration or gross negligence.”

 
H.J. Schypke, a German subcontractor for one of Nestle’s suppliers, Belgium-based JBS Toledo N.V., said in a statement Tuesday that it had never knowingly procured horse meat.

“We regret this incident and will intensify our efforts to provide the highest quality products,” it said. “As a result, we will conduct genetic tests on all raw incoming meat in future.”
