Well it's nearly 2 weeks ago since it hit the news that Tesco's and Iceland's value beefurgers contained horsemeat....and haven't heard anymore on it.

So are the supermarkets checking all their beef products for horsemeat, or are we left to take a gamble that because it says beef on the packaging we'll buy it?

They said that eating horsemeat wouldn't harm us so therefore nobody can sue....but I thought hang on a minute! ppl were buying the *beefburgers* that had beefburgers printed on the packaging and thinking the burgers were pure beef....I bet it didn't say *contains horsemeat*.

apparantly traces of horse DNA were found ( guessing in health and quality checks) and I suppose they "came clean" rather than it spread over the front pages.....

but it does open a BIG question - what the HELL are we eating - despite reading those labels Twisted Evil

I could easily turn vegetarian, it's also the best diet....as for that Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, I think that is so wrong to get ppl to eat all that wierd stuff...one day someone is going to have a very bad reaction to that.

But as for what goes into our food, I suffer with IBS, was diagnosed with it in '98, all of a sudden things like baked beans, tomato soup, weetabix, white bread, salad cream and other food stuff were having an adverse effect on me, and these were things I had consumed since I was a child......and the amount of ppl who suffer with IBS and other digestive disorders like Diverticulitis etc is very high.....these problems were hardly heard about from the 60s and so on, even before the 60s, so that tells me it's the rubbish that gets put into our food.

It's best to cook from scratch tbh instead of buying tinned and packaged stuff, but fresh meat and other fresh products are more expensive to buy, even the *healthy* and organic products are expensive to buy....you can't win Rolling Eyes

Maybe they are, but ppl should be given a choice as to what meat content they want to eat.....it's been done because horsemeat is cheap.

When I was at home, my mum used to feed our dog horsemeat, I remember the smell of it when she was boiling it up for the dog sick

After so many years of our dog eating the stuff, he looked like he had developed mange, his fur was going thin and bald on his back, took him to the vets and it was the horsemeat causing it, once stopped, his fur grew back lovely Very Happy

Stick with your butchers and do home cooking rather than ready meals is the safest bet.

Now they're moaning about it...

I think one is buying less and less meat out of the supermarket.
