What is more horrific about horse meat, in comparison to, say, lamb or pork?

If there's one good thing about all this bollocks, it's that it's making people think about where their food comes from.

Well, if you've got big companies who sell processed meat, and they use agents to get the 'best' deals from suppliers, then you're probably also eating all sorts of crap from Latin America in your hamburgers and hot dogs.

McDonald's is not guilty this time.

They stop putting meat in their burgers long time ago: they use sawdust instead.

Winkys in the 60's sold horsemeat and Horsemeat is meat and is as edible as a cow.
Winky's in Penna in the 60's dig close because false advertising

Horse is not the same as cow any more than a dog is. Not in the western Christian culture.

Horse for human consumption hasnt even been legal in the US until Obama recently signed an order allowing it.

Its all good eating, having lived in Germany & Holland I have eaten Horse burgers and Donkey meat sausage

we called the horse "Shergar Burgers"

we called the sausages "Donkeys Plonkers"

tasted amazing smothered in mustard and accompanied by a pint of white beer

Dog is nice too, never tried cat.

Also had hedgehog, Ostrich, Kangaroo, Ants, Locusts and Grubs..

That's not the issue here.

The fraud is in passing horsemeat for beef.

Yes, and also the quality and content of processed meats, that can apparently enter our food chain from anywhere on the globe.

If they can lie about what species is in it, it hardly gives me much confidence that they're acting in good faith in other areas of it's journey to our plates.

in other words, rather like selling HALAL meat to unsuspecting non-moslems, a case of mis-labelling and therefore Fraud , but according to you, perfectly harmless PROVIDED it is halal and for moslems.
