Sounds very unlikely that Burger King would admit something like this without a huge investigation and public scandal investigation dragging them though the media and backing them into a corner first

The accusation wouldn't surprise me, but their admission does

Who really knows what is in any of this stuff we eat from McDonalds, Taco Bell,,,etc.


Taco bell was in the news questioning there "meat" but the other ingredients didn't sour my stomach, like "oatmeal".
It was the low percent of meat that they were getting flack about.

McDonalds... scare's me.
Especially there old chicken nuggets :)

I don't know about the UK, but over here I noticed some change in the Whopper meat, some years ago.

Who knows what might be in them ...


It's long pig in the Whoppers here in the States. That's why I refuse to eat there.

LOL DailyMail.

This kind of stuff can only be dramatized in the UK.

I guess it's a country specific thing.... here in Canada horse meat is perfectly legal.


It's perfectly legal here too. However, the law requires ALL ingredients to be disclosed, and that didn't happen.

Also, though I personally quite like horse meat, it's NOT common to eat in the UK as most of us see horses as pets not dinner.
