Burger King Horsemeat Scandal: Chain Admits That Food Was Tainted
The Huffington Post | By Rachel Tepper Posted: 01/31/2013 4:54 pm ES
Burger King has admitted that some of its burgers sold in the U.K. and Ireland were, in fact, tainted with horsemeat.
This is just the latest chapter in an ongoing scandal in the U.K. and Ireland involving beef burger patties tainted with meat from horses and pigs. U.K. supermarket chain Tesco and other companies have also been affected. It's suspected that a meat distributor in Poland, which worked with all the companies in question, used meats other than beef as filler in cheap burgers.

I guess they don't let you have it your way anymore. Seriously, selling hamburgers without informing the public about horsemeat mixed in is horrible ! I wonder if any made its way to the states?
MacDonalds didn't know about this and fired the supplier immediately. Their contracts stated the supplier should sell McDs UK/Ireland beef only and instead they sourced mystery meet from Poland. So it was the supplier that screwed this up.
God, that is awful. I was under the impression that McDonald's actually had their own farms and bred their own cattle. I am sure someone on here said something about it months ago because they used to work on one, visited one, or something similar.
The problem was with Burger King.I didn't read about any other fast food places that had this meat...or their not admitting to it.
Next time I go to Burger King and want it my way I'm gonna say: Please hold the horse meat on my Whopper.
