Bad news for late-night eaters in UK who want their Taco Bell fix.

Britain’s food regulator is reporting that the fast-food chain is the latest to be hit with the horsemeat scandal. According to authorities, horse has been found in beef products after the Food Standards Agency conducted 1,797 tests that concluded more than 99 percent of meat came back negative for horsemeat levels.

But that last one percent?

Four tests apparently came back positive.

Taco Bell, owned by U.S. firm Yum Brands Inc., has three outlets in the UK.

“Some batches of ground beef supplied to us from one supplier in Europe tested positive for horsemeat,” said Taco Bell UK in a statement. “We immediately withdrew ground beef from sale in our restaurants, discontinued purchase of that meat, and contacted the Food Standards Agency with this information.”
