It's not just at IKEA.
NTTAWWT. In fairness to Burger King, the supplier apparently went a little rogue on its labeling. [uhoh]
Thank you, Denicos.
It's not just the mislabeling (although I, too, prefer to know what I'm eating ), it's the presence of specific medications in the horsemeat:
"There are worries that if unregulated horsemeat is substituted for beef it could expose people to a drug called phenylbutazone - often called 'bute'.
"Once used as an anti-inflammatory, its toxicity to some people led to a ban.
"The drug in rare cases caused a serious blood disorder known as aplastic anaemia.
"But it is still used widely to treat horses. Once treated these animals are not supposed to enter the food chain."
Just another reason to know your meat.
A UK veterinary committee had raised concerns repeatedly about the presence of the drug phenylbutazone or in horsemeat destined for human consumption.

But yes, I tried the vegan cheesecake at whole foods. Darn expensive. Good, but not worth the 14.99/lb they charge in Austin.

Ate lunch at the Vegan bar that day.
Downtown Austin WFM is unlike any other WFM in the country, since its the World HQ.

So what you're saying is that I should stick with wild horse or a horse from an organic farm.
So how does an inspector go about dissecting meat balls and telling the difference between Horse meat and beef?
Not going to lie, had no clue that you could eat at an IKEA.
I'd try dolphin, as long as it was "Tuna Safe".
DNA testing. They expected to find cow, and cow only.
The testing is fairly rapid and very specific now with good techniques based on 16S ribosomal RNA. Expect to see a lot more misbranded product identified in the next few months..
Also expect to see a lot more testing to confirm species of fish in the future. Current estimates are that more than half of some fish species in the market are counterfeit (e.g. sea bass, etc.)
why? im not the one slipping guests horse meat that i wouldn't eat myself.
The beef in my freezer was eating grass in my uncle's pasture last summer.
That's why there's horse dick in it!!!!!!
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
The RCMB...is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet.
The hot dogs at IKEA might be cheap, but the catch is that you have to put them together on your own.
Ok, invite us over for the Final Four. We're bringing meatball appetizers as our dish to pass.
I can still see the marks from where the jockey was hitting it.
cmon over brah. you guys will love the horse dick/roofie tar-tar im gonna slip you
In fact, I hate anyone that ever had a pony when they were growing up.
I'd still pony up for some.
