Re: Tesco "Value range" Beef burgers....

one of the awful parts of this scandle is the sheer waste of food that there horses in beef nurgers have caused .
When we ive in a world of so many people that are starving it does not seem right just to waste these beef/horse burgers .

Re: Tesco "Value range" Beef burgers....

Is there no law in effect for selling only 'inspected' meats?  The horse part of the burger must not have been inspected and could be unsafe to consume.  Why add horse unless there was some reason like the horse died of disease or was sick or something of that nature?

Re: Tesco "Value range" Beef burgers....

MsP it "seems" that mixed meat for mince came from a European slaughterhouse(s?) and since there are people that eat horse meat it's probably reared for human consumption. Not ole hag destined for the glue factory type thing.

Mumz I bet the company has requested that the patties in question be returned so they can export them to a country that can enjoy them knowingly ;P.

More interesting is that the powers that be controllin' let the public consume the stuff for a month and a half! yummy

Re: Tesco "Value range" Beef burgers....

Can someone provide links to reliable information?  It's a bunch of 'we're sorry' and 'it's perfectly safe' from Tesco.  Who produced it and where and was the meat inspected before being added to food?

Considering the very dire consequences of allowing unsafe meat products in to the food chain and the impact it has had in the past on meat industry in Britain and Europe, I would think this is a major issue.

Re: Tesco "Value range" Beef burgers....

It's such a hot topic there are so many stories it's hard to pin down a good source.

"..it could be from diseased or injured animals, for example." in the huffington link is just reporters doing their thing....sensationalism. If it bleeds it leads.

interesting stuff.....

Re: Tesco "Value range" Beef burgers....

I know people that used to think it is strange that I grind cuts of beef and make my own hamburger patties.  In light of this and the whole pink slime debacle, they are starting to see things differently.  Besides being sure of what is in it, it just tastes so much better.  yummy  yummy

Not at all strange.  We can get very nice grass-fed ground beef, some of it locally produced in Va. which is being produced at a high cost and low profit by a rich person with a cause, hope she never stops, but sure it'll change eventually.
