UK Shock: Beef Lasagne Meals 100% Horse Meat - VIDEO

UK Shock: Beef Lasagne Meals 100% Horse Meat - VIDEO

Firms are ordered to test their beef products, as the Food Standards Agency warns criminal activity may be behind contaminations

Friday 08 February 2013

Tests on Findus beef lasagne have revealed that some of the ready meals were made entirely from horsemeat.

Findus analysed 18 of its beef lasagne products and found 11 meals contained between 60% and 100% horsemeat, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) said.

There is no evidence to suggest the horsemeat found in the Findus beef lasagne is a food safety risk, the FSA said.

However, the agency has ordered urgent tests on the lasagne for the veterinary drug phenylbutazone. Meat from animals treated with "bute" is not allowed to enter the food chain in Britain as it may pose a risk to human health.

The best Tartar is made from

The best Tartar is made from Horse meat. Its not that big a deal.

Why Stop There?

Let's eat cats and dogs too. I hear they taste like chicken. I can't eat an animal that is more intelligent than most humans I encounter. Have you ever been around horses? Would you eat your pet dog? Maybe I am being stupid but I have been around a lot of horses and they are highly intelligent, loving, sensitive creatures and they can be very loyal to humans. It is very callous of humans to think that horses deserve no more respect than to be butchered, packaged and served up on a French dinner table. I had a Spanish teacher in college that told the class how she was sitting in a restaurant in Peru and a horse and cart went by out front. The poor horse choose that moment to drop dead in the street right outside the restaurant. Well lucky day! The people working in the restaurant ran outside and proceeded to cut the horse up and carry it into the kitchen to cook up to serve to the customers. What luck, free horsemeat!! Yum! Bon appetit to you exotic diners!

skippy

Have You Ever Eaten "The Black Dog?"

Popular among some asian cultures..

Ever have horsemeat?

It's not bad: a little tough, but a nice flavor. Quite popular in France and Italy.
