Burger King drops supplier linked to horsemeat



Quote:

British and Irish burger fans could face a Whopper shortage. Burger King has stopped buying beef from an Irish meat processor whose patties were found to contain traces of horsemeat.

The only reason we eat cow instead of horse is because when you walk in to a field with a club all the horses run away.  The cows just stand there and watch.

Honest question. Why is horse meat wrong, but goat or cow or chicken okay?

Because people have an emotional tie to horses more than they do cows. Horses are pets and companions to them and not live stock.

Burger King admits its burgers contain horse meat

Do you enjoy fast food? You might reconsider your next meal after you find out what the multi-national restaurant chain Burger Kinghas admitted to; having sold burgers containing horse meat to unsuspecting customers for up to a year.

Previously in this column it was described how horse meat had made its way into the UK's burger supply, with most of the offending meat originating from Poland. The horse meat revelation trigged a series of investigations and Burger King, which purchased meat from the offending Silvercrest corporation, denied any wrongdoing or sales of tainted burgers. After two weeks of heated questioning Burger King has come clean and says that some of its 500 UK restaurants may have served burgers with horse DNA.

The admittance was recorded by dailymail.co.uk, and Burger King confirmed suspicions:

Four samples recently taken from the Silvercrest plant have shown the presence of very small trace levels of equine DNA.

A spokesperson for Burger King went on to say that they have terminated buying meat from the tainted supplier:

They promised to deliver 100% British & Irish beef patties and have not done so. This is a clear violation of our specifications, and we have terminated our relationship with them. Through our investigation, we have confirmed that this non-approved Polish supplier is the same company identified by the Irish Department of Agriculture as the source of Silvercrest’s contamination issue.’

While Burger King has vowed to have eradicated the tainted meat, and is having thousands of patties shipped in from across Europe to fill the void in their processing chain, it remains to be seen if customers will be forgiving.

There was meat being imported into England from Ireland that had horse meat mixed in with the beef.  I don't think it made it to the U.S.
