nekom: sno man: nekom: Mr. Coffee Nerves: To be fair, they're called "meat" balls, not "beef" balls, just like that "fish" sandwich.

This is true. Horse meat is in fact meat.

Indeed, except the packaging specifically lists beef and pork in the ingredients... not horse.

Then it's a false advertising issue for sure.


Maybe the horse's name was "beef and pork".

mrmopar5287: On the other hand, if you already have a horse that you've used for however many years as a show horse, a hobby, or as a working horse, and it comes time to put the animal down because of old age or something wrong with it (maybe physical ailment, not a biological illness) then you have a source of several hundred pounds of meat.  THAT is efficient: taking animals that will be put down (but aren't sick) and using them as a food source.


You know what else are efficient food sources? Cats and dogs that are being euthanized at shelters. Also: people.

it's the same scandal all over Britain & Europe with the horse meat turning up in the Beef... And while that is false advertising the real problem is no one seems to know how far back in the chain of middlemen it goes ... and that means no one knows the source of the horse meat leading to the possibility of the horse meat being doped up ex-race-horse meat. (not fit for consumption)  Health issue trumps advertising issue.


Meh. Bute won't hurt you in the greatly diluted form it shows up in racehorse meat, and it's not persistent in the body. Eating doped-up racehorse meat is like taking a hundredth of a baby aspirin.

Yesterday I was in a bar and some girls told me that if I buy them a drink, they'll give me some pink slime.
Although I enjoy eating that kind of stuff, I declined their offer.
I could've asked for myballs sandwich instead... They're better than IKEA's. Maybe next time.

neversummer: How could there even be that much horse meat on the market? I mean considering the massive scale of the beef industry, cattle must outnumber horses 10,000:1.

I've always said that I'm 99.99% sure I've eaten human at some point in my lifetime. Think about it. What better way to dispose of a body.

wildcardjack: Yeah, whats so bad about horse meat? The problem I hear most about is the use of certain veterinary drugs banned in meat for human and that's not just a horse problem.


If M*A*S*H is to be trusted, consuming horse meat routinely as part of your diet leads to a negative reaction with tetanus serum.
