The Food Standards Agency says that it found horse DNA in meat products from Freeza Meats in Northern Ireland. Freeza Meats is ‘potentially linked to the Silvercrest factory’ from which beef burgers were found to contain horse DNA. It seems that meat contamination might still be going on in Britain.
I have no problem with eating horses. But other people do. Other people avoid eating pigs, cattle, meat in general, or animal products of any kind. For me the big issues are animal welfare (hence I prefer Freedom Food approved meat) and sustainability (hence I prefer Marine Stewardship Council approved fish). Everybody should be able to find out what’s in their food.
