UK Horse Meat Scandal

They've found up to 100% horse meat in some frozen processed beef meals like burgers and lasagna.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-21391891

Some of you know that I don't eat land meat. I only eat fish and seafood. It's not because I've converted to Islam, but because I'm a giant hypocrite. I honestly don't like the idea of eating something I'm friends with. I made friends with some cows in Wales a couple of years ago, so I feel bad eating cows. Then I saw the pigs at the zoo and one of them looked at me, so I felt guilty about eating them too. And I've never been a huge fan of chicken unless it's fried, but I'm trying to watch my girlish figure. I won't eat baby anything, so veal and lamb is off the table. And fuck off if I'll ever eat a horse.

Oh humanity. I don't get it. I'm pretty sure there are countries that eat horse meat and it's fine and normal. Why not just send it there instead of lying and trying to pass it off as bovine?

Yeah. Aside from the ew factor, that's my big problem. If you say it's beef but it turns out 100% horse then that's fucked up. I don't eat Tesco Value anything. Double ew.

Why do you still eat seafood though? Too ugly to befriend?

Horses are not only kind and intelligent creatures, they are also carriers of parasites and equine disease that could kill smaller mammals. Horse should be the last thing that they choose to use in their product. Truly a sign of the apocalyptic food shortage. Truly.

Nah. They're thinking the Romanian criminal underworld.

Interesting info:
Equine influenza (horse flu) is the disease caused by strains of influenza A that are enzootic in horse species. Equine influenza occurs globally, and is caused by two main strains of virus: equine-1 (H7N7) and equine-2 (H3N8).[citation needed] The disease has a nearly 100% infection rate in an unvaccinated horse population with no prior exposure to the virus.[citation needed]

While equine influenza is historically not known to affect humans, the impact of an outbreak would have been devastating.

Equine influenza is caused by several strains of the influenza A virus endemic to horses. Viruses that cause equine influenza were first isolated in 1956. The viruses can cross the species barrier to cause an epizootic disease in humans, and recently, in dogs.

The equine-1 virus affects heart muscle,[citation needed] while the equine-2 virus is much more severe and systemic.[citation needed]

The disease is primarily spread between infected horses. Exposure to infected waste materials (urine and manure) in stables leads to rapid spread of the disease.

Same here in Ireland, I am veggie so no fucks were given. Think the main problems were that of the Muslim community because they also found pork in what was meant to be beef and with the horse thing it was more about specific chemicals and illness that could possibly be given to and gotten from horse.

My guess is it has been going on for years

I'm pretty much veggie too because I'm a mildly hypocritical eco warrior type.

The fact that the brownies didn't die or get struck down by Allah should give them a clue as to how bullshit their rules can be.
