Burger King admits to horse burgers
Here's something you probably don't want to read at lunchtime. Burger King in the UK have come out and said that some of their burgers were contaminated with horse DNA, after initially denying it.
Apparently tests from their supplier Silvercrest confirmed the presence of the contamination, but Burger King are stressing that they have not sold any of those burgers. Which we have no way of knowing is true or not because it's not like someone bought a Whopper to keep as a souvenir. Anyway, they're saying that Silvercrest used a small amount of beef from a supplier in Poland that was non-approved, against their agreement to only use British and Irish beef and have such stopped using them for their burgers. Tesco also dropped Silvercrest as a supplier in the last few days. Maybe it's time to go veggie. Apparently tofu steak is nice?
And in 'are you f*cking kidding me?' news closer to home, the former head of the Food Safety Authority of Ireland has been appointed chairman of Horse Sport Ireland. No, seriously.

Do you know that in Ireland horses are slaughter in many part of the country and some have no scruple to make money collecting horses and selling them to be slaughter for the foreign market. With the economic crisis the number of killing is increasing. We are horrify because they kill horses, of course and we have to be horrify. Do you realize now? think about bovines too.....Posted 15:32 | Fri 1st Feb 2013
