Remember when we told you about horsemeat being found in burgers across the pond?
Well, the delicacies have made their way over here!
Burger King admitted that some of its burgers sold in the U.K. and Ireland were, in fact, tainted with horsemeat. The restaurant chain previously boasted that their patties are made with 100 percent beef, but that is clearly not the whole truth.
The Guardian has a statement from Burger King:
“Our independent DNA test results on product taken from restaurants were negative for any equine DNA. However, four samples recently taken from the Silvercrest plant have shown the presence of very small trace levels of equine DNA. Within the last 36 hours, we have established that Silvercrest used a small percentage of beef imported from a non-approved supplier in Poland. They promised to deliver 100% British and Irish beef patties and have not done so. This is a clear violation of our specifications, and we have terminated our relationship with them.”
Even though the horsemeat-tainted burgers do not pose a health risk, it is still a little alarming that you could be eating My Little Pony.
So, with that being said, what’s for lunch today?
