Would you like Horse with that?


You’re doing your weekly shop in the supermarket, you reach the frozen food section and you think “hhmm I fancy some beef burgers for dinner”. However, little did you know that it wasn’t just beef in those burgers you were consuming, but also pig…and horse!?

A breaking news story this on a number of Irish News websites including RTE and the Irish Independent has revealed that the presence of horse DNA has been found in more than one third of beef burger products tested by the Irish Food Safety and Pig DNA was found in 85 per cent of the beef burgers tested.

“The samples were taken from: Aldi’s Oakhurst Beef Burgers; St Bernard Beef Burgers and Flamehouse Chargrilled Quarter Pounders from Dunnes Stores; Lidl’s Moordale Beef Burgers, Moordale Ultimate Beef Burgers and Moordale Quarter Pounders; Tesco’s Beef Quarter Pounders; and Iceland Quarter Pounders.”

“The level of horse DNA in a Tesco Everyday Beef Burger indicated that horsemeat accounted for approximately 29 per cent relative to the beef content.” The beef burgers which tested positive for horse DNA were produced by two Irish plants, Liffey Meats and Silvercrest Foods and by Dalepak Hambleton in the UK.

So it seems that food companies have been throwing half of old MacDonalds farm into their value burgers.
