... they just put different packaging on it.

And forget to mention in the ingredients list that it contains a little horse biggrin.gif

Food items should have the ingredients listed. As far as horse, veal and Foie gras - I say "I will have potato with that". If it crawls off my plate, runs across the floor and I am not hungry enough to chase after it. I will not eat it. Other than that...

the EU has just rolled out new labelling requirements, not sure if that impacts the ingredients list, or just some traffic light scheme related to how high it is in sugars, fat and salt. Quite certain that it doesn't have to list which stable the meat came from though!

No I don't, in fact I don't very often shop there, prefer Waitrose which is the one shop I trust

have you heard traces of zebra have been found in the bar codes there?

Sorry, other dire jokes doing the rounds;

Can't see this Tesco bandwagon lasting furlong.
Hamburgers is an anagram of shergars bum...
Despite the recent news, Tesco says that their beef burger sales remain stable
They taste absolutely 'foal'
If u dont like these horse burgers try the meat balls they are the dogs bollocks !!

yeah , but she shops in Waitrose, a morally superior shop, or does it just have higher prices and not higher morals? Nearly all food comes from the same few suppliers, as thi ... (show full quote)

Why are people so upset about horse meat? It is delicious, leaner than beef and extra yummy on sandwiches. You will find it in any store in Sweden.

Yes it is commonly available in Sweden - in fact it is one of the main ingredients of specialisty sausage/salami such as Gustavs korv

In fact many people do not realise that the smoked meat *Hamburgerkött* which is commonly sold in the supermarket is in fact smoked horsemeat

I think the issue with TESCO is that the existance of the horse meat was not declared as an ingredient - neither was the fact that these *beef* burgers also contain pork products which many Jewish/Muslim shoppers will be unhappy to have consumed accidently

A gender-neutral spokesperson for a well-known supermarket chain has been quoted as saying:

"We cannot understand why the public has lost confidence in our low-cost beefburgers as up until the beginning of this week they were galloping off the shelves."

The same spokesperson has announced that this company, in an attempt to counter the recent negative publicity, will be sponsoring a race in the 2013 horse racing calendar.
Unfortunately they have decided to name the race the Shergar Stakes.

My doctor has told me to watch what I eat, so this weekend I' m going horse racing.
