Tesco's latest meat scare

31 Replies 314 Views Created 14-02-2013

I'm sorry to have to bring you this news but it's just been announced that the Food Standards Agency have revealed that DNA testing for the meat in Tesco's so-called 'Pantomime Horse burgers' has shown that it is in fact not horse but 100% pure human flesh!

 

What is this world coming to? :Shame:

Do you ever wonder why it wasnt caught in the UK but was caught in Ireland? remember when ireland first caught it and british media labeled it an Irish problem and the Irish were savage horse eaters.

 

Obviously people in the UK were being paid to allow it to happen.

This isn't some joke by the way - Apparently some products have been found to have steroids and stuff in them, one's that are dangerously cancer causing.

I think I'm going vegetarian for a while.

You should look at the chemicals that get sprayed onto vegetables and the soil they grown in too. There's no escape :D

Probably. But people will go back to eating crap after a week or so, once this is no longer news.

As with the mad-cow disease thing and other historical food scares, by the time it's in the news, it's too late to change your eating habits.

 

And with that happy thought...

Indeed, but I suspect buying behaviour is influenced more by the thought of consuming horses than by any more fundamental considerations. And that will soon pass.

Can't they find a better story to report? really am suprised there is enough news to fill newspapers throughout the year. That's probably because they report the same story every day for a month.

I can't help but wonder about the cross-section of society that considers horses to be like pets (and therefore taboo on the dinner plate) and precisely how much of it overlaps with the cross-section of society that would be happy with Tesco Value Bolognese or Findus Lasagne on its dinner plate...

 

The food standards agency are right to be concerned about any meat being sold for human consumption that is not fit for it, but there's far too much emphasis on Ooh, it's horse!

 

(Where exactly did the first complaints coming from? People who spend a fortune on carefully butchered horse-meat who can't stand the idea of plebs getting it on the cheap, perhaps?)

Yes, I suppose it must be the pet thing. It isn't about cuteness because piglets and bouncing lambs are quite clearly far cuter than horses.

 

We should perhaps be grateful that it's horse and not the mechanically recovered meat that was/is typically labelled as 'pure beef' on a technicality.
