I'm pretty sure it's because horse DNA was found in some of Tesco's meat.

It's also because of a meat processing plant in Co. Monaghan (Ireland) they were shipping out 1'000'000 burgers a day for €0.14 a burger. They were getting the meat from a plant in Poland. Now it costs €0.84 to buy a %100 beef burger, so obviously something had to be fishy. Well the guy in charge of the company in Ireland said "Oh it must be a problem with the factory in Poland, not with our one" turns out the dude owned the factory in Poland anyway, so he was doubly cheating.

Meat is meat. When it stops being delicious, that's when I'll start complaining.

It's not the fact that it was horse, so much as the fact that we weren't told that it was horse. If it was advertised as horse burgers nobody would give a ****.

Yes, I much prefer my horse carcasses to rot after turning the hooves to glue.

This change in meat which I did not notice until someone told me is really ruining the product.

It's not the actual meat that's the problem, It's the fact that it was being sold as Beef.

If it was advertised as Horse, no one would give a ****.

No we're not. I am British and do not mind eating horse and so does everyone else I know, our local butcher sells it... You shouldn't really comment on a culture when you are not from there. Also a British school in the Netherlands is not Britain.......

Elaborating my hastily posted previous comment.
I am from England, Have dual citizenship and grew up for the early years of my life in Norway and England, but I didn't go to school in England.

I went to college in London though and most people I met always had some reason why eating horses was mean or stupid or unnecessary. Very few people would go treat it as a normal thing.

London is not a true representation of Britain. It is a mixture of cultures from all over the world.

lets assume for a second that people can travel, now apply this to England.
I didn't spend all my time in London, in the same way I live in Canada right now, I live in Toronto, have done for 2 years. but I have also spent a month in Barrie, as well as some time on Quebec.

Look, you are being extremely vague and changing your story every time to fit your comments...... I have spent 38 years living here and I eat horse on occasion and so do my family and friends, like I said the local butcher in my town sells it. So the comment that it is "bull" that we do not eat horse is just simply incorrect........ End of conversation.

I didn't say ybrits don't eat horse, I said most Brits seem to find eating horse to be bad.

and how am I changing my story?

My mother is English, my father is Norwegian, I grew up in my younger years bouncing between the countries due to family, my teen years was spent in Netherlands, Singapore, New Zealand and late teens England for College.

I married a Canadian so now I live in Canada. its not impossible to have been a lot of places you know.

That's not to say there can't be areas of the UK where people find eating horse to be ok, but like you said yourself, one area can't represent the rest of the country. Perhaps where you live is less like other places in this matter?

It was still primarily beef, and more importantly it was what I expected when I saw a package that said "beef".

Go check the ingredients list on any "100%" apple juice, it'll probably be 30% cranberry juice or somesuch, as long as 100% of the ingredients are juice. The same applies for every type of juice, because most of them straight taste nasty. I think Orange juice is actually Orange juice though...

That is simply not true.... All ingredients must be listed by law in the UK. Besides the Beef lasagne meat content contained between 60 and 100% horse so it was far from primarily beef as you say.

Actually the horse lasagne meat contained less than 1% horse, but it was concentrated so some lasagnes contained 60-100% horse.

If you mean the juice thing isn't true btw, try rereading it, the ingredients list tells you there are other juices in there, but the advertising can still mark it as 100% juice.

Also, it doesn't tell you literally every ingredient, if a product contains less than a certain amount of an ingredient, usually due to a byproduct of the intended creation process or something similar, it can be omitted.

Apparently, there is a certain injection that is given to horses which (in high enough doses) is fatal to humans.

I like the taste of horse though (can you count zebra as horse meat?)

the horse meat is not tested for banned chemicals, as horses are vaccinated with compounds that aren't allowed to enter the food chain, horse meat cannot be used without being tested properly for these chemicals.

All British beef is safe, but horse meat is unknown to be safe, because only the cows are tested. We are not connoisseurs of horse meat.

It's not just about that. It's about product labeling. Think of it as if someone tryed to sell you a volks wagen as a mercedes, or soap as toothpaste.
