Horsemeat tests ordered on beef products

Food retailers have been told to carry out tests on all processed beef products after some Findus lasagnes were found to contain 100% horsemeat.

The price we pay for 'cheap' food stacked high in supermarkets is that we don't know what the hell we're eating anymore regardless of what it says on the packet.

Heads should roll, but probably won't.

I'm beginning to understand vegetarianism.

Chris Evans made a good point this morning, he suggests that tall of this could be a catalyst to the return of high street Butchers, Bakers etc. I think people are getting fed up (pun not intended) with bad service and products.

That's why we keep our 'use' of processed food to a minimum. It's all tasteless and overpriced anyway.

Exactly. We've used our local butchers for years, the quality is so much better it's sometimes hard to believe that stuff comes from the same animals as that sold in supermarkets. Perhaps the recent news explains why: it isn't the same animals. :lol:

An inevitable result of everyone wanting low price food available 24/7.

The latest concern is that human DNA has been found in Welsh lamb.

That said, many of us have suspected this for years.

I think this is brilliant news. I spent much of my 20s eating living on crappy ready meals and I was always a touch worried I might have contracted Mad Cow Disease as a result of the low quality beef they throw into those things.

But as it turns out, I was eating horse all along!

Result! It's a weight off my mind, I can tell you.

That's me.  I'm done.

I know it's not the point but if they'd offered horsemeat lasagne, I'd've probably gone out and tried it. Tomorrow night I'll have to try the zebra I got.

We'll all be fine once those nasty supermarkets have gone and we're back to buying meat from our friendly trusted butcher

:D

I go to an auction rooms in Bradford and last week I bought a new bell for my front door. It's a proper cast iron bell and it's got a cast-iron model sheep on the frame.

This week I've been back and bought one for my sister ... it's got a cow on it!!!

Seriously, we get on really well, it's just that she lives in a cottage surrounded by fields with Hereford Cows grazing in them.

Everyone knows that Zebras are black with white stripes. He'll have to do Louisiana style blackened steak and scrape some off!

Put my Findus Lasagne into microwave. I took it out after 3 minutes & it still wasn't finished. I said, "I've backed you before haven't I?" (Danny Baker)

I always thought that a Findus Lasagne for one was made entirely of broken dreams, a feeling of emptiness and heartache.

I think you'll find that that's actually the crispy pancakes. HTH.

So it turns out horse tastes like beef and is much, much cheaper.

You still need to be vigilant about hygene. no matter who you buy your food from or where it comes from.

Just what I wanted to say. I'm quite prepared to eat horse but it's not on sale legitimately.

It's nice to know what you are eating. I don't have a problem with horse meat but if it had been dog meat that would be different. Yeah I know it's not logical.
