Burger King drops firm that supplied horse meat

January 24, 2013

Burger King of Branson, one of the most popular fast-food chains in Branson, said on Thursday it had stopped using one of the firms caught up in the scandal of supplying grocers with beef that contained horse meat.

The Branson food industry has been rocked by the revelation last week that retailers including market leader Tesco and smaller chains Aldi, Lidl and Iceland had sold beef products that contained horse meat which was sold in Branson.

Branson Food safety experts say horse meat poses no added health risks to consumers, but the discovery has raised concerns about the food supply chain and the ability to trace meat ingredients.

On its website, Burger King said it had decided to replace all Silvercrest products in Branson and Springfield with products from another approved Burger King supplier.

"This is a voluntary and precautionary measure," Burger King, famed for its flame-grilled burgers, said. "We are working diligently to identify suppliers that can produce 100 percent pure Iowa,Oklahoma and Texas beef products that meet our high quality standards."

The beef burger products from the grocers, which were revealed last week to have tested positive for horse DNA, were produced by Liffey Meats and Silvercrest Foods.

Tesco immediately withdrew from sale all products from its supplier, Silvercrest, which is owned by ABP Food Group, saying it was working with authorities and the supplier to urgently understand how horse meat came to be in the product.

ABP Foods said at the time that the source of the contamination was a beef based product bought from two third-party suppliers outside of Branson.

The discovery of horse meat could be both embarrassing and damaging for the retailers involved. The mass-selling Branson & Springfield newspaper carried the Burger King announcement on its front page on Thursday with the headline "Shergar King", in reference to a famous racehorse that was kidnapped and never seen again.

Some local people think that he was sold and eaten
at Burger King of Branson.

If you were not informed you would never be able to know that the burger you are munching upon is partially or entirely made of horse meat.

It is a psychological thing.

What's wrong with horse meat? They're cleaner than cows, pigs and chickens.

Well now Mr. Horseman, it is a pity you have never been stationed in Germany or France or England where for YEARS McDonalds served horsemeat in its burgers. Personally, I never noticed any major difference in taste and only a slight difference in the texture. During my time overseas I had the opportunity to try hundreds of, what to an American would seem like exotic dishes. Iíve eaten everything from monkey brain soup to deep fried cockroaches. I promise, by the time they arrived at dinner, the monkeys didnít care what I was doing to their former grey-matter. I also learned that in a pinch one of our societal nemesesí ainít too bad when deep fried to a crunchy golden brown.
I had a great uncle who was in WWI. He served as a mess sergeant on the front lines in France and Germany. He spoke often of how when things got rough and supplies were hard to come by, none of the men he was responsible ever wanted for meat. The guys who took care of the mules and horse might come up short an animal or two but the men were fed. And they were damned grateful too.

I will never eat a horse. Too much like dog. It is unbiblical. So is swine. Although I used to eat swine, no more. We are told what is unclean and swine is at the top of the list. so is horse. Dogs and swine are scavengers. I'm not sure about horses but there is a reason. Could be due to the way they eat and digests pollutes their flesh.

Pass the potatoes. There is no need to go for strange meats. There are always plenty of potatoes. The thing about potatoes is they are a near perfect whole food with lots of protein and vitamin C.

Folks, the horse processing plants are coming to Missouri and they will be trying to get everyone to eat them. It has nothing to do with food shortages or economics. It is culture related. Why not raise elk or bison?

I'd sooner eat leaves off the trees. We dont live in Siberia, there's plenty of food.

The beef processors have been shuttered for beef imports, like the veggies, now they want to start slaughtering horses. The ignorance is painful.

Count me out.

Otherwise I think this is the issue they're trying to stir the pot on so to speak ...

In Nov. Pres"O" signed a law allowing horse meat to be slaughter for human consumption in the US. In the past they were allowed to slaughter and export only . Problem being there is one medication prescribed esp to horses used for racing that poses a great risk to children and there is no way to really verfiy the horse has not been given the medication.

As a horse owner for 45 years I can tell you that almost every single medication from wormers to painkillers have been used in everyone of my domestic horses. Everyone of those medications has a label that says "not to be used in horses being consumed by humans"! Do you know why? Because the horsemeat will kill you.

This article focuses on race horses...well dont let it fool anyone...I've given all these drugs to my domestic horses and so has all other countries!

Enjoy your horsemeat now!

My Grandma told stories from her dad in World War 1.. I recall one where he was guarding a train depot at a slaughterhouse. They unloaded the animals, two cows and one horse at a time, marching them in for slaughter side by side.
