Horse meat was recently discovered in school lunches as well as in some hospital foods. This might not seem like a shock to readers following the stories about horse meat in Burger King products as well as in certain frozen products.
If horse meat was not supposed to be part of the school menu or in the hospital foods tested, some may question how this could happen. Recent reports show several groups pointing the finger at others with no one claiming responsibility.
Those not offended by the thought of eating horse meat may not understand the fuss. However, most feel they should get what they pay for without the continual surprise of learning their food is something other than claimed.
The discovery or horse meat in school lunches may encourage some to bring food from home or to consumer more vegetables and fruits, as well as other food they can recognize as being exactly what it should be. This won't help those in the hospital unless they can order from a vegetarian menu.
No confirmed reports of horse meat hiding in foods in the United States have surfaced at this point. With most consumers expecting products to be as advertised, there may not be many people willing to just overlook the recent events.
