Horse meat in your beef

Erie, PA

#1 Feb 8, 2013
This has been going on in Europe for about a month now. They've discovered several instances of major food suppliers filling beef products with horse meat. Interestingly enough they're able to fully identify the issue using DNA testing.

I wonder if it's going on here. Also, millions of dollars of this stuff has already been removed from shelves and probably returned to the suppliers for refund. It would not be hard to imagine these same companies that did this would find another end source for this millions of dollars of product instead of destroying it as they should do. Let's hope it doesn't end up here.

" Findus analysed 18 of its beef lasagne products and found 11 meals contained between 60% and 100% horsemeat, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) said.

There is no evidence to suggest the horsemeat found in the Findus beef lasagne is a food safety risk, the FSA said.

However, the agency has ordered urgent tests on the lasagne for the veterinary drug phenylbutazone. Meat from animals treated with "bute" is not allowed to enter the food chain in Britain as it may pose a risk to human health.

All food companies have been told to test their beef products, with the FSA saying it was "highly likely" that criminal activity was to blame for the contamination."

"Findus UK apologised to customers "for any inconvenience caused" - and said anyone who bought the affected lasagne products could get a full refund."

I wonder how that refund line goes, "everyone with a receipt please raise your hoof"?

In truth, the US standards for food testing are far lower than the ones in Europe. Noone is probably even checking.
