"Fully compliant beef lasagne will be in stores again soon."
CNN has reached out to Comigel France but has not yet had a response.
Horsemeat is generally considered taboo in Britain, although it is commonly eaten in neighboring France and other countries, including China, Russia, Kazakhstan and Italy.
The discovery of pig DNA in beef products is of particular concern to Jews and Muslims, whose dietary laws proscribe the consumption of pig products. Jewish dietary laws also ban the eating of horsemeat.
The Justice Ministry confirmed last week that a number of meat pies and similar items supplied to prisons in England and Wales were labeled and served as halal -- prepared in compliance with Islamic dietary law -- but contained traces of pork DNA, the Food Standards Agency said.
"This is an unacceptable situation and people have a right to expect that the food they are eating is correctly described," the agency said.
The furor over the Findus lasagna prompted humor as well as outrage on Twitter.
"If you think the Findus Lasagnes are bad, you should try their Filly Cheese Steak," wrote James Martin, posting as @Pundamentalism.
Comedian Adam Hills, posting as @adamhillscomedy, joked: "Those horses wanted to be uncovered in British Lasagne. Even the brand was called Findus."
