On a hot summer night, would you offer your lunch to the horse with the red roses?

Is there anything Tesco sells that isn't tainted by horsemeat?

Lisa: Um, excuse me, isn't there anything here that doesnt have meat in it?
Doris: Possibly the meatloaf.
Lisa: Well I believe you're required to have a vegetarian alternative.
Doris: (pulls out a hot dog, takes sausage out). Yum. It's rich in bunly goodness.
Lisa: Do you remember when you lost your passion for this work?

Has Tesco relocated corporate HQ to farkin' Equestria yet, or are they still working on it? Surely somebody there must have studied supply chain management...

Let's hope that horse ever finds its way into McDonald's burgers. Because every single burger can contain the meat from 1,000 different cattle according to those Spurlock Morgan food-industry hating types. One horse wanders into the wrong abbatoir and it'll be 1% horse in everything.

I'd eat horse meat if they sold it at the store. I would not appreciate mislabeling though.

That would be 0.1% horse (/stickler for math)

More seriously, that's why I don't consider the reports of 'trace amounts of horse DNA' as a serious problem, because trace amounts could mean anything, and unless the meat is coming from a supply chain in which horses are absolutely not processed anywhere nearby (e.g., probably the US), you may be able to detect trace amounts. 5%, though, to me is high enough that it's just just an accident but a deliberate contamination of the beef supply (most likely because it's cheaper to throw it in than to use actual beef)

Hey subby, thanks for reminding me that Ho-Ho's don't exist anymore.
 
2013-03-12 08:01:53 PM  
Why recall? Just slap new (accurate) labels on 'em and keep selling.

ArcadianRefugee: Why recall? Just slap new (accurate) labels on 'em and keep selling.


Horsemeat and mislabeling isn't the real problem. The problem is not knowing where the meat comes from and whether it contains bute or not.

Find some horrible little Shetland pony and kill it. Nobody will cry.

Forget about that - I'm more worried about beef contaminating my horsemeat.

LOL. I had horse in Mexico. Big deal; 5% bet you couldn't even tell (I'm sure that's what Tesco was thinking)-
