Where’s the Beef?

What’s in your burger?

That’s a good question!  If your meat comes from the third biggest seller of meat, United Kingdom based Tesco, it might contain some horse meat.  And not traces!

In an effort to revive consumer faith, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland revealed 37% of its hamburger meat contains horse DNA in the Everyday Value line of the company’s products.

Burger King revealed that it employs the same beef supplier.

Let’s not even debate if horse meat is good for you or on the same par as cow.  I think it’s a matter of trust.  When I order a burger I expect it to be from a cow.  I think most people who eat meat from this supplier expect the same.

Tesco has a horsemeat problem
