    Horse is actually a much leaner source of protein than beef, I eat it all the time. That being said.. if your buying beef it should be beef and not another animal.

    In my opinion, the fact that they found PIG DNA in it is alot worse than finding horse DNA. Reasons should be obvious. (I hope)
    I, personally, wouldnt cause an uproar for horse meat, but I would for pig meat in a beef burger I have eaten.

    That being said, the mcrib is 70 ingredients (34 in the bun...lol wtf) and available all year long (but recommended to keep rare for marketing reasons)

    See you're moving into territory of bollocks that I can instantly dismiss.

    I WORK IN FOOD INDUSTRY LOGISTICS.

    THERE IS NO SUCH BRAND LABEL AS "100% BEEF" IF THE LABEL SAYS 100% BEEF IT'S 100% BEEF.

    Restaurants don't manufacture their own raw food ingredients, because that would be inefficient and expensive.

    The difference in quality with fast food is because of how the food is prepared, not because of the food itself.

    as i ride horse myself, i find the idea of eating horsemeat simply weird. I'm not about to eat dog or cats eitehr for that matter, or any kind of animal i feel i could have some sort of bond with.

    Many ppl say i'm very wierd cuz of that, but that's just the way it is. So for ppl like me, finding out there is secretely horsemeat in a burger would be really upsetting

    Excatcly this. Cant belive such thing can go on, but hey - More reason to avoid junk food places.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    Looks like you really...hit the ground running with those puns.

    You know, like horse races? No? I'll see myself out.

    I can't really see a good reason for someone to be particularly upset about the wrong sort of animal being in their food. Of course, false advertising shouldn't be done, but the specific animal doesn't really matter.

    I've got some Sainsbury's Basic burgers in the freezer right now and I've definitely eaten cheap burgers from Tesco and ASDA.

    I don't really mind but I'd rather they be honest with their labelling.
