Neigh it ain't so! 100% horse meat in Findus 'beef' lasagne...

8 February 2013

Okay – there’s no way of underplaying this – the horse meat saga has turned into a fiasco and is one, maybe two steps away from being a full-blown scandal.

Shops have hauled Findus Beef Lasagne off the shelves after tests showed that the meat in the ‘food’ could be as much as 100% horse AND contain an animal painkiller.

Findus have said that 15 out of 18 samples taken contained some levels of horse. So if you’ve never tried horse before and have always wanted to, guess what, perhaps you already have.

The Food Standards Agency comfirmed that 11 out of the 18 samples showed levels of over 60% horse, with fears that the veterinary drug phenylbutazone might be in there as well. Findus are carrying out fresh tests for that.

Other supermarkets, including Tesco and Aldi, have already scrapped products that are made by Comigel, the French-based company that are supply Findus with their horse-filled lasagne.

Have YOU eaten any of the withdrawn products in the past? What were they like then?

    A horses cock could feed an entire benefit claiming northern family of 13, just a thought.

    I think the more shocking thing is that there is meat of any type in a Findus lasagne.

    The people who eat Findus and TESCO own 'shite' are too fucking thick to know what a horse is. They probably couldn't point a horse out at a horse race. "Is that a cow?"

    Findus - success on a plate for you.....in the form of the latest horse race winner

    They could just save a lot of time and money and just put "May contain traces of horse" on the packaging.
