om a more serious note- it not not what the meat is that is the problem. The first issue is that there are no labels to tell consumers what they are eating, in fact the burgers claim to be beef and chicken ( I think). If an animal has a decent life and a quick clean death there can be no objection to eating it- but very few animals do. watching lovely animals being sold off to the glue man at horse sales is heartbreaking- once a treasured pet- now discarded. But go to any shelter, any big pig unit and it is the same.. We torture and abuse sentient animals in order for us to eat cheap burgers........ no need for it at all. Just eat a bit of meat three times a weekm pay a good price for it. We would all be healthier, we would all benefit, and years of pain would be avoided.

since the ban on slaughter was lifted in 2011.[\quote]

This misinformation bothers me. Its not that they "lifted the ban," they just didn't renew the bill when the statutes timeframe was coming to a close."

@drawman61, the reason dogs and cats are repulsive is that they're carnivores, and meat from any carnivore literally tastes like $#!+. Also, pigeons live mostly in urban environments, they eat garbage, and they carry a lot of diseases. I've eaten dove and squab, and I'm sure pigeon would be quite tasty if they were farm raised or hunted in a rural area.

I would have nothing against eating horse meat, but I've heard that it tastes lousy. Back in the 70s, I used to feed my dog Strongheart horse meat. It smelled like crap, but he loved it.

Cow = yummy, Horse = repulsive
Pig = yummy, Dog = repulsive
Sheep = yummy, Cat = repulsive
Chicken = yummy, Pigeon = repulsive

Horse meat is typically not regulated to be fit for human consumption. If there is some in the UK, and that is what got mixed in there, it's still pretty bad, but not nearly as bad as if it isn't. And dirtysteve: maybe your dirty standards are different, but I'd call 29% of a sample more than a spec of DNA. You can be sure there's chunks of horse meat in some of that stuff.

For the people who aren't getting why this is a problem, people don't want horse, they want beef.
And are we sure it's horse meat anyway? The last heard it was horse 'DNA'.

Eating too much can give you a horse voice.

Oh boy, that was incredibly funny!

As late as the 40's horse flesh consumption wasn't all that uncommon here in the USA. The USDA used to inspect it, hell, several horse slaughter buildings existed country-wide.

In some 'high-end' eateries a horse steak is actually being served again, since the ban on slaughter was lifted in 2011. Heck, you can even buy it behind the glass in some grocery stores.

Not sure whats wrong with eating horse meat.


I'd say the problem is that it says no where on the box it contains horse meat.

woe is me, someone is eating an animal
/sarcasm

get over yourself horse lovers, a horse is no different than a cow, only difference is they were used for transportation and have been cared for as pets.

I don't see you same activists bitching about the horse becoming glue, or his hooves being made into jello. How many of you women have horse hair extensions?

Us Brits find the entire affair hilarious! All you have to do is g**gle 'horseburger jokes'.
'Tesco Express' becomes 'Pony Express'; there is 'My Lidl Pony'; the list is endless and some very clever humour pops up.
Slightly more disturbing is the finding of pig meat in some samples. As much as we all love bacon, (I don't think it will keep as well, plus the kosher and halal elements of the consumer society will probably be a bit put-off.)

The reaction to this is simply because it is horse, and we don't eat that... for whatever reason we can come up with to justify eating cows and not horses...

The really scary thing is that we have no drating clue what is in our food, how it was prepared or treated. This is precisely why I don't eat meat or processed food. I mean it is getting hard enough to even know much about organic vegetables.

When I worked at a Roy Roger's fast food joint,our (Very un-official) slogan was-We put a little Trigger in everything we make". Not surprised.

The Irish selling horse meat....insert national stereotype here.
It doesn't bother me eating horse, but a company willing to use it to sell to the UK probably doesn't get too fussy about the quality.

@ AuburnJunky - Thanks, what a pal! I'd hang with you anytime.
In fact, any pal of yours is a palomino!

Yes - I know- tesco's value burger are bound to be as dodgy as all get out, but I worry my veggie burgers might contain Uniquorn.

Let's try to give a politically correct comment:

Don't expect to get something worth 2 dollars if you only have to pay one dollar. (economics 101)

Less politically correct:
The horse meat might be the part to least worry about.
(food industry economics 101)
