Establishment Equine Etiquette or "Would u like fries w/ your Pinto Burger?"


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MIAMI, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Burger King will reportedly test its meat to make sure it is 100 percent beef after horse DNA was found in beef products from one of its food processors.

Diego Beamonte, Burger King’s vice president of global quality, told Bloomberg Businessweek that “details for DNA testing have not been worked out, and no timeline has been set for implementing the new procedures.”

Burger King addressed this topic after it was disclosed that Silvercrest Foods sold beef products containing horse meat to other retailers.

According to the company’s statement to PR Newsire, Burger King says it will test specifically for equine DNA.

Burger King told Businessweek that it dropped dealings with Silvercrest after learning that meat supplied by the distribution company contained horse meat. Burger King went on to say that product from Silvercrest was never sold in their stores.

Sneaky beef supplier just wanted to have a bigger bottom line. I would prefer horsemeat to GMO soy filler. The question is did burger king know it before the test???

I would rather a little horsemeat than GMO soy filler. What if Burger King knew all along and just got caught???

There probably more to this story than they are letting on - I'd be very surprised, if it were simply; just a blend of horse meat.

Hi Oh Silver!

And Away!

Don't worry. Burger King "tests" its meat.

Tests reveal Findus frozen beef lasagnes contain 'more than 60 per ...

Frozen lasagnes sold by UK supermarkets contain more horse meat than beef, food officials revealed tonight.

The Food Standards Agency said tests showed that Findus beef frozen lasagnes contained “more than 60 per cent horse meat.”

It says it has ordered tests into whether the horse meat has traces of a banned equine drug, phenylbutazone, or 'bute', which is harmful to humans.

Findus, Tesco and Aldi all withdrew a variety of frozen beef products from sale yesterday following new information from a French supplier, Comigel.

Tesco and Aldi have said the frozen lasagne and spaghetti Bolognese do not conform to specification but have not specified the problem.

Horsemeat scandal: FSA chief says pork and chicken will need to be tested

Supermarkets should test pork and chicken and other meats for cross-contamination in the wake of the horsemeat scandal, the food standards regulator has said.

Catherine Brown, chief executive of the Food Standards Agency, said shoppers would expect retailers to test all their meat products for cross-contamination by other meat in the wake of the horsemeat scandal.

The news came as the supermarket chain Tesco admitted it had been selling frozen spaghetti Bolognese readymeals which were between 60 per cent and 100 cent horsemeat.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, Miss Brown said retailers were currently focusing on ‘comminuted’ beef – “the stuff where meat is ground up to the point that it is not readily recognisable”.

But once the horsemeat scandal was over, other meats like pork and chicken would have to be tested too for cross-contamination. She said: “It is not lost on retailers that they need to test significantly across this product range, across wider meat-based product ranges.”

The findings had to be made public to consumers. She said: “It is no good just knowing they are doing it – they need to make it available to us.

“At the moment we are getting them first to focus on ‘comminuted’ beef, meat balls, spaghetti, beef burgers – but there is a real sense from industry that they are thinking about the wider food chain.”

There have been reports of chicken being secretly injected with waste from the beef and pork production process to inflate chicken breasts to fetch a higher price. The findings are particularly sensitive because Muslims, Jews and Hindus are forbidden from eating either pork or beef.

Supermarkets will publish testing results of their beef products on Friday this week – however, this will not be an end to the uncertainty.

Miss Brown disclosed that the number of product lines which had to be checked meant that only “the first set of results” - possibly as few as a quarter of the total - can be published on Friday.

Retailers have now been told that they have to inform the FSA if they found “the slightest indication” of cross-contaminated meat. In future they could be required to publish food testing figures every three months.

U can also add Germany and Denmark to the list even though they try to scale it down that its only found in lasagna and the meat is from Romania. Horsemeat is delish :-) .But what they do is a hustle.
