too many fingers in our pies

I rarely, hardly ever eat pies and never prepared stuff like lasagne  --- thank Christ ! tip of the iceberg ? :shock: how long before it's found that 'bush meat' has been slipped into the european food chain ? has primate meat ever slipped through ? how would you feel if you found out you had eaten something that contained meat from our closest genetic relative ? chimpanzee maybe, gorrilla even ? it's a laugh a minute isn't it ? or is it ???

We've now got to place our faith in our local Spanish butcher we don't trust the supermarkets right now.

Bad news Vulc

My brother worked in a meat products factory in the South east over twenty years ago. He routinely found meats in the 1 ton frozen blocks they received not normally associated with the human food chain. He personally found and identified both zebra and kangaroo, this is the early eighties, before kangaroo was found in the exotic meats section. What surprises me is that routine testing of incoming meat was not continued, presumably in the name of profit since it costs to test

It's a government conspiracy

to get us used to the idea of eating horse meat.

They'll bring in routine testing for meat not fit for human consumption, tell us that it's OK to eat, bring in full traceability as with beef and pork etc. We'll become used to the idea and end up with horse meat as part of our normal diet. I've eaten it abroad and found it to be OK, so I wouldn't have a problem as long as it was fit for consumption and could be fully traceable.

Another thing. What are we gonna call the meat from horses?

We have pork from pigs and beef from cattle. Is poor old Dobbin gonna get lumped in (excuse that) with chicken and lamb and not have it's own name.

Ah, I've solved it - Dobbin.:mellow:

Bad news mostly

but no surprises, the up side may be that 'bush meat' won't have pain killers like bute in it or any animal related antibiotics that are  harmeful to humans. My ex sister in law worked for Bowyers in Plymouth famous for their pork pies, she told us that some of the blocks of meat were unidentifiable and looked like they'd been dragged through the streets for a week, boil it mince it put it in was the order of the day :wacko: A mates wife in the RAF worked for Ginsters in Cornwall and told similar tales, she wouldn't eat any of the products.

Whatever the pro's and con's for horse meat may be the uneasy feeling of what else has been slipped into the food chain that may be less appetising than horse meat is there now.

Veggieburger anyone :wacko:

Meat with no name

Lamb. Rabbit. Squirrel. Snails. Horse.


All damn tasty too.

I'm just surprised that processed ready meals had meat in them. I thought they were all Lips & Arseholes.
