Burger King: ‘Fine, There Was Just a Little Bit of Horse Meat in Our Burgers’

· February 1, 2013


You are what you eat..

From Grubstreet:

Looks like someone got a little creative with the custom blend, messed up in the slaughterhouse, or didn’t wipe down the grinder too carefully: Burger King announced that contrary to an earlier assertion, there are in fact “very small trace levels” of horse DNA in its products, but that it has taken action in order to cut out the horse-contaminated meat from its supply chain. It is thought that the multinational Silvercrest Foods bought meat from a “non-approved supplier” in Poland, and the fast-food chain hadn’t been able to detect equine DNA earlier this month when it performed tests on its patties, in part because “testing for equine DNA is not a standard practice used in beef production.”


Apparently it’s pretty damn tasty according to Anthony Bourdain.
