Lancashire County Council withdrew pre-prepared cottage pie delivered to schools after it tested positive for horsemeat as "equinegate" continued to gather pace today.
The council said it had withdrawn the beef product from 47 school kitchens in the latest development in the scandal.
Meanwhile the Food Standards Agency released new details of its latest tests.
The FSA will report on products after asking retailers and suppliers to provide "meaningful results" from tests to detect the presence of horsemeat in processed meals labelled as beef.
And the news came after officials said burgers containing horsemeat had been supplied to hospitals in Northern Ireland and so a range from a company in the Republic of Ireland had been withdrawn.
Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Iceland, Marks and Spencer and the Co-op said no horsemeat was found in their products.
Asda withdrew its 500g beef bolognese sauce from shelves on Thursday after tests revealed the presence of horse DNA.
