    Default Put down those Burgers or you'll be Running to the Races!

    In a study carried out by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, it was found that:
    A NUMBER OF beef burger products, on sale at various supermarkets across the country, have tested positive for horse DNA. Out of 27 beef burger products analysed, 10 tested positive for horse DNA, while 23 tested positive for pig DNA.
    Burgers which tested positive are all available at all the main supermarkets here.

    However, this takes the biscuit:

    However, in one sample from Tesco, the level of DNA indicated that horsemeat accounted for approximately 29 per cent relative to the beef content.

    Why are these companies putting meat from other animals into our food?

    Horse meat is very popular in Italy.
    Nothing wrong with it.
    You'll never go broke appealing to the lowest common denominator.

    a lot of the salamis have donkey meat in them.

    Without being snide in any shape Ruserious, what did you think that sausage meat and buger meat was / is made from ? Like, 5 X 1/4lbrs for 3 euros can't possibly contain Irish beef.

    No particular issue with horse meat, had it before and found it quite pleasant.

    The only issue that I have is that there had to be something dodgy going on as the meat plants mentioned don't handle horse meat.
    Curious to say the least.
    That and the fact that the owner if liffy meats was done for possession of angel dust in the past.
