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.


This too... it's like a substitute or filler.... and they prolly get horse meat real cheap.

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's nothing wrong with horsemeat. But there is a problem if they don't point out that it's horsemeat.


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.
