The One True TheDavid: I still haven't tried horse, camel, llama or ostrich
brantgoose: For all I care, they could put kangaroo in the burgers.
spunkymunky: When I was in Austria (summer of 01 or 02, I don't remember exactly) one of the menu items at the local street vendor's place was a horse meat sausage. I was a big fan of the Käse Kreiner but the horse meat one was delicious.Not as delicious as tacos made with lengua in place of normal American meat.
Ummm, I think some Jews and Muslims may have a problem with this one.
Aldi said a sample of its frozen Oakhurst Beefburgers showed up positive for 0.1per cent horse DNA, while its Oakhurst Beef Quarter Pounders were 0.1per cent equine and 0.1per cent pork.

Supes: Pin Fiften Clob: The fact that horse meat is so taboo boggles my mind. I would personally not eat it, but I don't see what the big deal is. I can understand the customers being upset since it wasn't advertised as such, but whatevs.It's because people humanize horses. It's the same reason people (at least in the West) don't eat dogs... we are socialized to attach very human qualities to them. Probably a lot of it has to do with the strong horse racing culture. Japan, for example, has attached no such qualities to horse meat, and sells it regularly.
Confabulat: Wow, it's one thing when someone finds a rat head in the nuggets, but this? WTF?
DeathBySmiley: thelonearranger: Did anyone else notice the phrase "It is known" snuck into an article about eating horsemeat? Well-played, author who is obviously a fan of Game of Thrones!!!Real fans don't call it Game of Thrones.They call it A Song of Ice and Fire.
BronyMedic: Glendale: Now we know what "meet" is made of.Please. Don't knock it. I enjoy their tasty Malk.[passmethemalkplease.files.wordpress.com image 276x260]
muck4doo: Amos Quito: When they came for the cows, I said nothing...moo!
Fark Rye For Many Whores: Brits bridle at horse patties
The One True TheDavid: JasonOfOrillia:There's nothing wrong with horse meat.I doubt there's anything wrong with human meat for that matter, but it's not usually considered a civilized delicacy like horse is in some countries.Beef is geting more tasteless all the time, so I've pretty much switched to pork and lamb when it's within reach. And of course turky & chicken, and catfish -- I love strongly fishy catfish.Goat and venison are great; goat you can sometimes find in the "ethnic" markets, and I wish I knew a hunter to buy venison from. Rabbit and frog taste like chicken to me and chicken's much cheaper.I still haven't tried horse, camel, llama or ostrich, and I'd like to be able to find and afford buffalo steaks instead of the frozen ground stuff -- which could be polluted with cow meat.So what's the problem? Thy should admit there are other meats in their burgers and charge more so the "foodies" will flock to it.And I have never eaten human flesh. Not as far as I know anyway. Unless maybe it was mixed in with potted meat or Spam at the plant.

brantgoose: What a waste of perfectly good horsemeat and beef. I mean really. It's not as if horsemeat is poisonous. It is probably less poisonous than regular hormone and antiobiotic-laden beef. And having seen a few Whoppers in my time, I expect that horse meat can only improve them.For all I care, they could put kangaroo in the burgers. (That's the next big thing--Australians are about to discover that they've been eating a combination of emu, roo, and lamb as "beef" for years--which probably explains why Australian life-expectancy is so much better than American, British or Canadian life expectancy.)Isn't horse lean meat? You might be getting some performance-enhancing drugs from the horses that lose races, but then again you might not. There's probably more drugs in the horses that win races.I insist on horsemeat in my fast food burgers!And don't forget the emu, roo, lamb, moose, deer, and rabbits.ESPECIALLY RABBITS.Have you ever had rabbit? Tastes like duck.Could be worse. Could be road kill. Which is what I suspect they have been adding to fast food burgers in North America, seeing as the horse meat goes into pet food.
12349876: Real Women Drink Akvavit: I've never seen mutton here in Cali, but I can get lamb easily.That's because there's no regulation in America. Any sheep regardless of age or sex can be labeled lamb.

WhippingBoy: The only problem I have with this is now I want a horse Whopper.
digitalrain: I got a fish eye in a school fishwich when I was in elementary school. I took a bite and somethingwent 'pop' in my mouth. There was still enough of it in the sandwich for me to tell what it was.Ugh. It was years before I could eat a fish sandwich again.
DB: An urban legend is born.
saturn badger: DB: An urban legend is born.Tonight Burger King abandoned its earlier denials, saying: 'Four samples recently taken from the Silvercrest plant have shown the presence of very small trace levels of equine DNA.You were saying?
