The 62% beef in Birds Eye beef burgers is just that (although the 'beef' can have an element of 'beef fat', just as a joint of meat from the butchers can). The 38% is onions and spices. No mechanically recovered meat, no inability to say what goes into their products.

well, we've got it in austria now :-)

in frozen lasagne, doner meat (now there's a REAL problem for muslims :shock:) and salami sausage (horse meat percentage is almost 30% in some cases)

apparently, the horse meat found in austria comes from canada...

eta:
i'm not at all surprised by this and i still find it staggering that people believe that a frozen lasagne for under €2 contains only the highest quality ingredients ;-)

I wonder how long it'll be before they find traces of human DNA in the food? Not long, methinks. :sleepy:

super old fashioned [being ironic]. In Naples, the Camorra will just drop a hated one in a tank of acid or in a landfill, as well as drugs. That's why they also control the garbage processing.
But horse meat is cheaper and quite a delicious meat, you just have to cook it more to be more tender.
