Lasagna with horse meat was discovered in the United Kingdom, with details being made to the public. The company selling the lasagna, Findus, admitted as much as 100% of the meat in some of their product could be horse meat.
Just as Burger King announced it would cut ties with a supplier that included horse meat in what was thought to be beef, another truth about horse meat in food may not surprise most.
While some are not appalled at the thought of horses being slaughtered for the human table, many complain they have a right to know what is in their food. Especially in the case of restaurants serving the general public, truth in what is being offered is required.
Although most consumers may feel safe in purchasing products that claim to contain meat or beef, some are not so sure.
According to The Christian Science Monitor, Catherine Brown, Chief Executive of the Food Standards Agency, more comprehensive testing will be done by the food industry on what is sold or served, to assure products are what the label states.
While horse meat is not typically seen in the states, some are not concerned about what meat is sold elsewhere. However, most feel they should not be sold horse meat and be told it is meat from another animal.
