"Fast food chain Burger King said traces of horse DNA were found in samples of patties from a food-processing plant in Ireland but that the meat never reached its eateries.
"Four samples recently taken from the Silvercrest plant have shown the presence of very small trace levels of equine DNA. This product was never sold to our restaurants," the company said in a statement on Thursday.

Did you just hear guys? Edison is talking about some magical lightening power going into something to bring day light into a room when it's dark. I can't wait to hear what he has to show.

If it tastes as good as beef, I'll eat horseburgers.

Bk's got the best fries out of Jack MacDonald's and Wendy's. (Not including Whataburger) Hell I'm good with horse if it still tastes amazing topped with fries.

This has been big news here in the UK as it was also revealed that a number of supermarkets have been selling burgers with as much as 25% horsemeat from this same supplier (unknowingly of course).

Obviously there is a concern that in a country where we do not eat horse meat this is happening, and begs the question what other meat is getting into these products.

But on the whole I don't see the big deal about eating horse so long as it is labelled as such. Lots of countries do eat horse, and I'm sure it isn't the worst meat in the world.

I see no point in being fazed by this.
Animal meat is animal meat. And we eat it.
We also eat cow, pig, and turkey meat.

Really? I think it was as much as about 12%, and there was as high as 25% porcine meat.

@naronic don't freak out, remember that horse meat is kosher. if it was pig instead of horse? yuck! that'd be grounds for legal action #judaism #islam

You're probably right, I'd only glanced at a few articles as frankly I'm not that bothered by it. I no doubt saw the 25 and assumed that was relating to the horse meat. 12% is still a huge amount of something that isn't supposed to be in there at all though!

I never ate Burger King's burgers anyway, but that's pretty gross. I wonder if McDonalds has the same problem at all...

This. I, most of the time, don't care what I eat. As long as it's tasty.

I was once in a McDonalds when one of the fryers set on fire. Apparently it happens quite a lot.

I've heard of people eating cats and dogs in other countries, but I've never heard of people eating horses. The only time I even heard of that being done deliberatedly is when people ate a horse who were starving. Maybe they have decided that when a horse is used for glue they should simply do something for the rest of it?

Yeah, if you're gonna eat animals, don't be so picky about which ones. I mean, if you're gonna kill a pig (which are way more intelligent than horses) then what is the big deal?

Also, if you're gonna eat at big heartless food chains like BK, don't be surprised when you find out they're fucking with your food!! lol
