Horsemeat Scandal Gets Worse

Europe's horsemeat scandal continues to worsen in both size and scope. For one, the meat of three horses tainted with "bute"—the veterinary drug phenylbutazone—possibly entered the human food chain in France, reports the AP. The British government said today that eight horse carcasses processed in the country's slaughterhouses had tested positive for bute, and three of those could have made their way into the French food supply. The painkiller/anti-inflammatory is considered harmful to human health if ingested.

In addition, horsemeat-tainted lasagna has now been detected in Germany, reports the BBC. Stores are pulling the TiP product from shelves and are checking other brands for signs of impurities, too. All EU members are being urged to check for horsemeat traces in their processed beef.

Shit, after all the processing that that meat goes through there is probably only trace elements of that pain killer in it.... Deal with it.... Worse case you die, and you dont have to deal with people anymore.... Either way, you win

Horse Meat Found in UK School Lunches
SCANDAL ALSO SPREADS TO NORWAY

Looks like UK schoolkids are among the many who have been unwittingly eating horse meat. DNA tests have found horse meat in cottage pies sent to 47 Lancashire schools. Officials believe only a "minute" amount of the rogue meat was actually consumed by children, and say the meat isn't believed to be dangerous, the BBC reports. "But I've no doubt parents will agree we need to take a very firm line with suppliers," a Lancashire County official said.

Three Irish education boards yanked beef burgers from their menus over the horse meat issue as well, though one later reinstated them after confirming they were all-cow. Meanwhile, the scandal continued to expand its footprint, as ready-made lasagna meals sold by Norway's biggest retailer were found to contain horse meat as well, Reuters reports. The meals were pulled from shelves earlier this week based on suspicions they might be tainted, but today brought the first confirmation that the scandal had indeed reached Norway.

The barcodes are getting removed next, because they contain traces of zebra. And whatever you do, don't try the veggie burgers, because they tested positive for Uniquorn.

I'm struggling to figure out why anyone is upset about this...

Horse = animal = food.

Some people get upset about eating horses cause they feel like they are special animals or whatever, but the real problem is that since horses are not supposed to be raised for consumption there aren't as many laws as to how they can be raised to ensure the meat is safe for consumption.
 

 

Not that the food animal care laws in this country really give a good goddamn about actually protecting human health more so as they care about maximizing profits, but supposedly Europe has more enlightened food laws.  I don't really know myself.

Back to the original story though, everyone wanted so fucking badly to blame BK for this problem when it was clearly a problem with their supplier... and now that it's been shown to really not just be a BK problem, I have to laugh at how hard they got demonized.

Horse Meat Scandal's Latest Victim: Ikea Meatballs

 

Ikea is the latest and most unlikely name to be dragged down in Europe's widening horse meat scandal. Czech veterinarian authorities today said they found horse meat in packaged Swedish meatballs destined for sale in restaurants inside the furniture giant's stores, reports the AP. The meat was labeled as beef and pork, and was produced in Sweden, notes Sky. Affected meatballs were also found on sale in Belgium, Britain, the Netherlands, and Portugal, adds Reuters; about 1,675 pounds of meatballs have been yanked from stores in the Czech Republic alone.

Horse Meat Found at Taco Bell

If you don't want to eat horse, you might want to drop the chalupa. The great European horse meat scandal has spread to Taco Bell, with British regulators revealing today that they found horse meat at the chain's UK locations. That, it turns out, puts the Bell in pretty elite company; of the 1,797 meat samples regulators tested from across the country, only four came up positive, including Birds Eye ready meals and Brakes skewers, which had already been implicated, Reuters reports.

Taco Bell has just three outlets in the UK. The company released a statement stressing that the contaminated meat came from a single supplier in Europe, and noting, "We immediately withdrew ground beef from sale in our restaurants, discontinued purchase of that meat, and contacted the Food Standards Agency." But the news comes at an inconvenient time for parent company Yum Brands, which just this week announced it was tightening safety standards after its Chinese KFC restaurants had a contaminated chicken scare.

Wouldn't be surprised if this has been happening for some time now. Only the sophistication of our detection methods has probably brought this into the light. Along with listeria and E coli outbreaks in packing facilities, this is just one more reason our food warrants such scrutiny. 

What really irks me is the tens of thousands of head of cattle are culled to keep the price of beef up. By culling I mean killed and incinerated.

More Ikea Food Woes: Horse Meat Hot Dogs...only in Russia though.

he last 10 days haven't been kind to Ikea's PR team, what with the horse meatballs and fecal bacteria-tinged chocolate cake. Today brings no relief: The furniture giant announced that it identified horse meat in hot dogs being sold in Russia and has pulled the offending products. The discovery came as a result of expansive testing Ikea has been doing in meat products around the world, CNN reports. "The vast majority of these tests show no indication of horse meat. However, there are also a few tests that do. In those cases we remove the product from sales," the company said in a statement. Only Russian hotdogs contained the rogue meat.
