Well at least some of their burgers have contained a percentage http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-21034942

I'm sure they tasted ok.

That wouldn't be a Daily Mail source would it morddwyd?

I've only read that it's DNA traces. If there are any cases of 29% contamination, I imagine that any legal prosecution would be under the food labelling regs.

...i.e. Burgers not correctly labelled as beef/equine burgers!

No. BBC News this morning.

It looks to me like the producer had found a source of cheap meat based bulking agent, didn't look too closely and bunged it in the value brand products.

I suppose we should be grateful Sweeney Todd wasn't operating in the area

I quite like the taste of horse meat myself. I pinched some from a meal being prepared for a group of dogs during the war. It seemed to me that the dogs were better fed than we were.

I see the Daily Mail is already taking a beating on here, I wonder why? I shall immediately go out and buy one for their version of the story.

I've just remembered that I still have a burger purchased from Aldi in my freezer. So that's my lunch problem solved. Aldi's beef burgers are great.

It must be the extra added equine content that makes them taste better by a nose Bingalau:)

Why should beefburgers contain beef? Hamburgers don't contain ham?
