The German discount chain said it was withdrawing its canned beef goulash and tortellini bolognese "as a precaution" in Sweden and in neighbouring Findland, while tests were carried out to ensure they didn't contain horsemeat.
Lidl said last week it had found traces of horse in a product sold by its Austrian subsidiary.
Several Swedish supermarket chains have already pulled their lasagne dishes produced by France's Comigel.
A spokeswoman for Lidl Sweden said the company's own-brand goulash and tortellini, produced by German group Dreistern, had been removed from stores.
"Right now we have removed them, while we're looking into this," Caroline Forsshell said.
