UK food retailer Waitrose is now involved in an investigation where its frozen beef meatballs have tested positive for traces of pork.

Waitrose said on Wednesday that two batches of its Essential-16 British Meatballs brand produced last summer may contain pork. The retailer adds though that the meatballs are safe to eat but pork is not listed as an ingredient and should not be part of the recipe.

The market has removed the frozen meatballs from its stores and has put up customer information notices in all of its branches. The products were made for the chain by Fresh Link Foods, the largest private supplier of frozen sausages in the UK retail market. Fresh Link’s parent company is ABP Food Group, the company originally at the center of the horse meat scandal, and which is now under police investigation.
