So what if it contains horse meat? There's nothing wrong with eating horses, Americans willingly eat far worse meat products, hot dogs contain pig assholes and snouts, and chicken nuggets are essentially every part of the chicken that isn't meat. Unless of course the horse meat is contaminated in some way, which would be a completely different situation...

Pig assholes......

Those are listed as one of the ingredients in Ball Park Franks, just after sodium nitrite and mechanically separated turkey.

Horsemeat scandal: Four new products test positive

Posted Image
Nearly 2,000 tests for horsemeat have been carried out by British retailersContinue reading the main story

Horsemeat scandal

Four beef products sold by Bird's Eye, Taco Bell and catering supplier Brakes have been found to contain horse DNA, the Food Standards Agency says.

This is the third wave of test results received by the FSA, which has now received a total of 5,430 test results.

Meanwhile, new tests conducted on beef retail products revealed no new cases of horsemeat adulteration, the British Retail Consortium (BRC) has said.

This latest round of tests saw 1,797 products being examined.

The FSA has asked retailers to test beef products for the presence of more than 1% of horsemeat, with anything above that figure considered to be a sign of adulteration.

Its latest results have found that more than 99% of tests show no horse DNA at or above the level of 1%.
The affected products are Birds Eye's Traditional Spaghetti Bolognese and Beef Lasagne - which the company took of shelves last week as a precaution; Brakes' Spicy Beef Skewer; Taco Bell's Ground Beef.


'Let down'
Taco Bell has three outlets in Britain and says all its affected stock has been removed. The products had come from a supplier in Europe, the company said.


A spokesman for Taco Bell said: "Once we learned of this issue, we immediately voluntarily tested our product for our three Taco Bell restaurants in the UK.

"Based on that testing, we learned ingredients supplied to us from one supplier in Europe tested positive for horsemeat.

"We immediately withdrew it from sale, and discontinued purchase of that meat and contacted the Food Standards Agency with this information. We apologise to our customers and take this matter very seriously as food quality is our highest priority."

Birds Eye said in a statement: "We are introducing a new ongoing DNA testing programme that will ensure no minced beef meat product can leave our facilities without first having been cleared by DNA testing."
Brakes, which is based in Ashford, Kent, said: "Our testing programme represents a significant proportion of all results the FSA has obtained from across the food industry.


"Brakes have also segregated a frozen burger as a precaution after equine DNA at 1% was reported to the Food Standards Agency."

It said it was "very disappointed to have been let down" by suppliers and that it "sincerely apologised to our customers."

Meanwhile, fast food chain McDonald's announced that none of its meat products had tested positive for horse DNA, adding customers could "continue to trust in the quality of food" served at its restaurants.
Retailer tests


The BRC says 95% of its members' products have been checked, including all minced beef lines used by the UK's largest supermarkets.

There have been 361 tests on 103 products carried out since 22 February.
The trade organisation represents a range of retailers, including supermarkets and independent shops.
A total of 1,889 tests have been carried out by BRC members since 20 January, with 0.3% of them finding traces of horsemeat.


The BRC's food director, Andrew Opie said: "The UK's major supermarkets, and a number of other BRC-member food businesses, have now tested all existing processed minced beef products.

"The reassuring news is that another intensive week of testing has produced no new positive results. And, since this testing programme started in mid-January, just a third of 1% of products have tested positive."

Food withdrawals
Horsemeat was first discovered in January in frozen burgers on sale in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, and since then traces have been discovered in processed beef products and prepared meals across the EU.
A first wave of tests on beef products sold in the UK found horsemeat in some products sold by Aldi, Co-op, Findus, Rangeland and Tesco.


Subsequent rounds of testing revealed adulteration in some products sold by Asda, Sodexo - which supplies food to schools, care homes and the armed forces - and the Whitbread Group.
Last week Ikea withdrew a batch of frozen meatballs from sale in the food section of stores in the UK, and other European countries, after tests in the Czech Republic found traces of horsemeat in those products.

Horsemeat scandal: Minister urged to reveal Sodexo supplier
Posted Image More than 6,000 tests for horsemeat have been carried out by retailers in Britain Continue reading the main story

Horsemeat scandal
The government has been urged to name a meat producer involved in supplying food containing horsemeat to schools and the armed forces.
French caterer Sodexo withdrew all frozen beef products from its UK operations last month, after some tested positive for horse DNA.
Labour's Mary Creagh said ministers should reveal Sodexo's supplier so UK companies could check their stock.
But the government said its disclosure could hamper investigations.
'Supplies at risk'
Speaking in the House of Commons, shadow environment secretary Ms Creagh said: "On 22 February, Sodexo announced it had found horse meat in a beef product and withdrew meat from schools in Gloucestershire, Southampton and Leicestershire, and the armed forces.
"Sodexo has refused publicly to name the products, the level of horse adulteration or the meat company which supplied it - thereby preventing other organisations from knowing whether their supplies are at risk."

It does not help the police to arrive at prosecutions if information is revealed”

End Quote Owen Paterson Environment Secretary
Addressing Environment Secretary Owen Paterson directly, Ms Creagh insisted the government knew the identity of the meat supplier.
"Will you now name that company so the rest of the public sector can check their supplies?" she asked, adding Mr Paterson had a "duty" to reveal what he knew.
However, Mr Paterson insisted he had "discussed this issue yesterday with the chief executive of the Food Standards Agency (FSA), who is completely satisfied that the information required from Sodexo has been supplied".
"There is an investigation going on and in some of these cases it might lead to criminal prosecution," he told MPs.
Mr Paterson added the FSA had to be "guarded" about what information it released - "in case the investigations are impinged upon".
"This is a criminal conspiracy which covers 23 countries and it does not help the police to arrive at prosecutions if information is revealed," he said.
Tests expanded
On Wednesday, the FSA said members of the public were to be asked if they find low levels - or "trace contamination" - of horse and other species in beef products acceptable.
It comes after more than 6,000 tests for horse DNA were carried out in six weeks.
Tests for horsemeat in processed meat products have now been expanded to look at foodstuffs labelled as containing beef as a major ingredient.
