Horse DNA has been found in some beef burgers being sold in UK and Irish supermarkets, the Republic of Ireland’s food safety authority (FSAI) has said.
The FSAI said the meat came from two processing plants in Ireland, Liffey Meats and Silvercrest Foods, and the Dalepak Hambleton plant in Yorkshire.
A total of 27 products were analysed, with 10 of them containing horse DNA and 23 containing pig DNA.
Thing is, there’s probably worse things in the burgers than a little bit of horse, of course. And no one can tell if it’s horse, of course.
