            The latest news is that Tesco, the biggest supermarket chain in the UK, are selling beefburgers that have 30% horse meat in them.

            It is not Tesco who make them but another company.  Other large chains also sell these burgers.  Tesco have cleared their shelves.

            27 burger products sold in five supermarkets were tested and food safety agents ­discovered horse meat was in 10 of them.

            They say there is no need to panic however, I for one would hate to think that I ate horse meat.

            I gotta tell you that the local radio station was running a phone-in - callers were saying what they found in their food that didn't belong there (this arose because of the above story).  One was an earwig, another was a plaster and the worst was a cat identification tag from a chinese takeaway.

            What horrible items have you found in your food?

                I'm just gobsmacked that 60 bits of insect in a certain amount of food is acceptable.  No insect bits should be an acceptable amount.  It's disgraceful when you think about it.

                I think I'm going to start doing things the old fashioned hard way. Milking the cow, churning the butter. I can't deal with those facts. OMG that's gross.

                lol, I think the problem, is not so much the factories, but the fields, when the thresher minces the wheat, ya gotta know buggies are goin with it; I don't think there's much in the way one would do, cept for a VERY fine tooth comb, separating a hair thin piece of grain from the hair thin piece of buggy

                omg i saw this on the news to yesterday and i was shocked, its crazy that they can get away with this, but who knows, and does the actual supermarket chains know this is happening, i mean who knows and who knows who and where to point the finger too, i mean yes the obvious culprits is the actual factory's producing those products that get supplied to the supermarkets but i mean come on where is quality control when we neeed it :

                and dtsweet that list made me feeeel sick reading it

                but yeah its the way it is i suppose, unless more things got checked on a more regular basis who knows what the average consumer has actually consumed the last 10-20 years

                  Good point.  Bugs and field mice....yuk. 

                  Lucky - apparently an ingredient from abroad (place unnown) contained the horse meat.  What possible ingredient apart from beef can you put in a beefburger except maybe onions and herbs/spices?
