The horse meat scandal

in Europe, food safety, scandals

We haven’t been quite sure what to say about the growing horse meat scandal in Europe. We didn’t actually start getting mail asking us when we were going to post about it until IKEA announced that they’d found horse meat in their meatballs. (They have since announced a recall, according to the New York Times). Oh people, we know where your priorities are.

Pre-IKEA, the Daily Show did a segment that summed things up pretty well:

The horse meat scandal in the UK was purely about large corporations cutting corners to increase profits, they have so much power they will not even be prosecuted for it.
They labelled products incorrectly which is a serious offence and any small company who had done the same thing would have been severely dealt with.
They should be made to pay for their greed.
The worst was not the horse meat but Pork found in products that should’nt have been there, completely unacceptable to a multi cultural society.
