meanwhile. 
company Findus's lasagne beef was found to be between 60-100% horsemeat.
 
issue doesn't seem to be with the fact that the food contains horse, so much as the fact that the horses may have been given drugs which are not allowed in meat products. 
which would be because this country doesnt raise horses for food. 
thats what i can gather anyway.

Shadow environment secretary Mary Creagh said the latest revelations raised questions about the extent of the scandal.
"This is no longer just a food safety issue but possibly a criminal trade," she said.

MYSTERY HORSE MEAT CRIMINAL AT LARGE!

I wasn't bothered when it was just the burgers I wasn't bothered, but 60-100% is too much for a beef product. If it was advertised as horse I'd be fine with it. Probably wouldn't buy it, but it wouldn't be an issue.

The chance that there could be a drug used on the animals that isn't allowed in food has made mum root around the freezer and throw out any of Findus's lasagne.

seriously though who would be Down with eating horseburgers when the dust settles on this whole ordeal cos i definitely would

i wouldn't be surprised if people started to miss the taste of the hidden horse and we just had it as a Thing anyway like the daily express would huff and complain like the smartarse kid who didn't win the Science Cup Award in year 8 (its funny cos this was me) but no-one would care
itd be a very british ww2 "oh well" thing to do i wish we'd go back to shrugging our shoulders and just carrying on eating tripe and weird bits of animals and having puddings called spotted dick

i want to eat horse tho its delicious like the burgers madeo ut of it are gr8
knowing my luck i've got a severe degenerative disease from eating a few years ago but oh well1!!!!!!!!!!!!! hmmmm well!!!!! yolo!!!! (wheres the guy who used to say that i hope he's living by the philosophy he claimed to love so much)

like you know how american chocolate had to be turned back to the type with the sour aftertaste that tastes like dog chocolate because everyone was used to it i reckon thats whats gonna happen when they inevitably fold to the endlessly complaining british public and remove all fun mystery meat out of my burgers





like imagine if people knew what was in mass produced milk..........................................i mean i still drink it cos im a plebe but

(the secret ingredient in milk is horse)

I don't care. Sorry, I just have a really strong fear and dislike for horses :P

That being said I would definitely not eat them either. Just keep them away from me, please.

Apparently, school dinners have been discovered to have horse meat in them. 47 Lancashire schools were supplied horsemeat in cottage pies.

I think that they should state whether it's horse meat, cow meat, pig meat, blahblahblah..... Honestly, I wouldn't eat a horse (being a brony and all) but if they clarified then I wouldn't have to buy horseburgers.

according to my mother (the most reliable source i have, excuse you), a lot of brits who go to france and the like and order "steak" end up being served horse... because in those crazy foreign countries, horses are served up as steak as the usual thing. 
and people never know, because its actually delicious. 
 
which is probably why it took so long for this to be picked up on haha... i remember hearing that somebody tracked down the romanian abattoir or wherever the heck the meat was sourced, and the owner of it was indignant because "of COURSE it's horse meat, it's really good!". 
haha dem crazy brits. 
we, we crazy brits. 
 
so does this mean that these places have long since stopped selling secret horse burgers? 
guessing so, i just saw this pop up on the Recent Topics and now im hungry again. 
 
i can see the issue when it comes to religion etc, if there was pork in halal beef products or whatever (i think that WAS something that happened during the whole mystery meat fiasco), but otherwise.. eh, its food, its all still animals, if it tastes good then whats the deal.
