Exactly, not that I am supporting eating Horse meat, however, they're supposed to mount a Horses head above the door of the establishment.

I was talking to the Wife about this before I left for work and I told her I wouldn't mind eating horse meat. I would like it advertised as such though. This was advertised as Beef and 100% wasn't Beef.

False advertisment is what gets me the most about this.

There's a problem with horse meat if it's not safe for consumption. Who knows what inspection the horse meat has had, do we even know if the horse meat that has been used in beef products has even passed health tests?

Is it horse meat from joe blogs horse that recently died which had been pumped with wormers and other drugs, or is it horse meat from horses BRED as cattle? That plays a big part in if it's safe to eat or not.

It is happening all over the place. Here is a test.... go to your bathroom, look at your tooth paste... anyone remember when it was a huge fecker.... not today we pay the same price for half what it used to give us... But I still use the same amount on my tooth brush and its the same crap they spewed out of there factories 50 years ago.

We are all gimps, push that red button and end it ffs....... reboot the earth :)

Why warn people not to eat it? Just tell them its Horse Lasagne. People probably will love it more.

So weird that people are eating cows without giving much thought, but no, not a horsie!

You can't ride a cow ... or bet on it. :p

I avoid nearly all processed, frozen, or industrially produced foods.

Eat fresh. Buy from your local farmers.

Buying local is no guarantee. It all depends on the supplier.

Horse meat is enjoyed by many cultures around the world. Doesn't bother me in the least.

The problem is the Horse Meat also contains various medicine the Horses have been given that can cause Cancer in Humans.

I am wondering also.

Would it bother eaters of Fish, that their Findus Cod fingers contained Sea-Horse meat also?

Just wondering. :ninja:

there absolutely is something wrong with horse meat. Im sure things are similar in Europe as they are in the US. Beef is inspected, tested, and graded to certain USDA standards to ensure its safe to eat, horse meat as far as I know doesn't have those same standards at least in the US that ive never heard of it. So these could be old sick diseased horses being passed off as beef when in fact they could very likely be no where near the same standards or as safe to eat as USDA inspected beef.

And your standards are working so well these days, hence the surprise at finding horse meat...

Again, there is nothing wrong with horse meat when the customer and the industry are informed. Proper tests can be done to check the quality of the meat. The issue here isn't that horse meat was used, it's that horse meat was being passed off as beef.

ummm, you're aware that this horse meat is in the UK right? That's what the article is about. All beef that goes on the market in the US is inspected by the USDA, all of it, so yea, considering the amount of beef we eat in the US I think they do a pretty good job.

Whoops, sorry about that. That's what I get for thinking I remember the article the next day. :pinch:

The last point still stands though. There isn't a problem with horse meat, there is a problem with pretending that horse meat is beef as it doesn't get submitted for proper inspections.
