I too...

don't mind eating my Lidl pony burgers, my "beef" with this is, that the burgers were passed off/labeled as beef burgers and not multi-animal burgers :mad:

I'm not sure

that the purchasers of Tesco Value burgers give a flying fook about what's in them. It must have come as a bit of a surprise that they contained so much meat!

Excellent :lol:



Vulc - find the right butcher and you can buy horse meat in Spain.  It is very high in iron, so is good for you.

29% horse meat value burger

I work as a Food tech in the meat industry. Tesco are  massive, retail buyers screw the suppliers into the ground 45% profit margins on all frozen food items are not unusual.

The frozen food meat industry is a commodity market with lots being bought and sold much the way oil or wheat is traded and each factory competes to obtain raw materials at the right price.Traders get between the suppliers (farmers/ boning plants) & the manufacturers and push the price up.    

Sometimes you will buy a batch of meat having been assured of it provenance just to find that what arrives at the back door is not what you thought you where buying. The whole plant can come grinding to a halt because the J.I.T has f*cked up.

So in some ways it almost inevitable that some unscrupulous trader has pulled a fast one on a factory the bit I find highly amusing it was the Irish FSA that found the issue but it was mainly Irish Factories that had been doing dodgy deals! Talk about shooting yourself in the foot!

HMV vouchers are now being accepted at Tesco.
HMV stands for Horse Meat Vouchers.

 
I had one of those Tesco Horse Burgers, I still got a bit between my teeth.

  
Tesco  have just withdrawn their veggie burgers too after they discovered traces of Uniquorn in them.
