Today I am traumatised. Truly. On the Irish news today it was announced that our 'beefburgers' contain up to 30% horse meat. I've calmed down a bit since I heard it on the 6pm news but gawd it's bloody awful.
I don't buy ready made burgers but I do buy minced 'beef' and make my own. I wonder now if I've been eating the remains of Shergar (an Irish race horse that 'disappeared').
I know the Irish economy is at rock bottom but at least tell us what we're eating! Horse meat is eaten I know, but I don't want to eat it when I'm sold beef. According to the news T**co, Du**s stores, Ald* and Lid* are all selling these products. These are all leading supermarkets in Ireland.
How low can we stoop I wonder? What's next?...roadkill burgers?
I'm planning on heading back to the UK soon if I can persuade the better half who is local.
Thank God for Linda McCartney's legacy...TVP from now on I think!
