PARIS Feb 22 (Reuters) - French catering and vouchers group Sodexo on Friday said it was withdrawing all frozen beef products in the United Kingdom after having found horse meat in some of its products.

"Despite repeated guarantees from our suppliers, our sampling has identified a frozen beef product which tested positive for equine DNA. This situation is totally unacceptable," Sodexo said in a statement.
