sno man: Pretty sure none of these burgers would have been advertised as halal or kosher, but very not cool kids.
*checks tesco*
Beef (99.2%),Sea Salt ,Cracked Black Pepper
nothing about either, just that it's not currently available.

Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper aren't ingredients. They're the horses names.

"In Ireland, it is not in our culture to eat horsemeat and therefore, we do not expect to find it in a burger"

Thank you, Professor O'Romero.

This might be the only time you'd want at least 20% less pony content.

A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and burgers aren't made from a horse, of course. That is, of course, unless that horse is found in between this bread.

I'm allergic to horsemeat - it gives me the trots.

Horsemeat burgers are fine as part of a stable diet.

Just had a look at the use-by date on my burgers in the fridge AND THEY'RE OFF!!

I assume if we had many farkers from those locales they would in retrospect claim to have noticed the taste too.

Let's see, never eaten horse.

Goat, rabbit, snakes, frog legs, bugs, bear, deer, bison, emu, alligator, shark and squirrel on the other hand...

That reminds me, gator, also shark, and swordfish. No squirrels but I haven't ruled it out. As I have said before, if I were *desperate*, I'd eat my cat, but only if he weren't bringing me rodents to share at that point (which he totally would).

My wife and I discussed it and, in the event of necessity, we'd eat someone else's pets, but not our own

I'd eat it. And I'd make it breakfast the next morning.

No, seriously, Bourdain covered this last May. It's red meat. It's from a herbivore. How could it not taste good?

The FSAI said the retailers stated that they were removing all implicated batches of the burgers.
A total of 27 products were analysed, with 10 of them containing horse DNA and 23 containing pig DNA.

Finally, hamburgers with actual ham.
