(Scroll down for video) The horse meat scandal across Europe continues to widen as horse meat was found inside tacos at Taco Bell, according to press reports in the United Kingdom.
Taco Bell is just the latest restaurant to be involved in the scandal of horse meat throughout Europe and the United Kingdom.
The ground beef at Taco Bell is one of four new products found by the U.K. Food Standards Agency to contain more than one percent of horse meat.
The restaurant chain has only three locations throughout Britain, and said that all affected products have been removed from stores. The products come from a European supplier, the company said.
At least 95 percent of restaurant chains in Britain have been tested for horse meat.
Horse meat was first discovered in January in frozen hamburgers in the U.K. and Ireland. Since then, tests have shown that many processed foods and products contained horse meat.
Burger King in Ireland admitted that some of their burgers contain horse meat. Ikea meatballs in Europe were also affected.
Taco Bell assured U.S. customers that the issue of horse meat is contained to Europe.
