I don't think they have ascertained that they have passed it off as beef yet have they? Or have I missed that?

Apparently Waitrose withdrew meatballs today.
There's a joke there somewhere...

well they've endeavoured to stick the blame on Romania, but I reckon all countries in the EU will end up being involved

Does minced horse look anything like minced beef?

The one in Yorkshire is in Todmerdon and was raided by the police and Defra officals earlier this afternoon.

Will have to wait untilabout 1/4 of an hour then I can update this when local nes is on..

EDIT,,,10-25pm

The FSA has said that the Todmerdon Abbatoir was supplying the Welsh abbatoir with horsemeat.

They have both been closed down .

There are 5 Horsemeat Abbatoirs in England so maybe all the abbatoirs will be checked for Horsemeat and where the horsemeat will be sent for processing.

Following the discovery of King Richard remains in a Leicester car park,
archaeologists now digging up TESCO’s car park to look for the remains of his horse.

they withdrew the meatballs because they contained pork - now I have a feeling I have some in my freezer - but I don't really care if there's pork in them cos I ain't a Muslim but if I was I would not be too thrilled

spose I could don a veil and take them back for a refund :-D

I think more women should eat hoarse meat h'ors doeuvres .... Perhaps with a main course of Papal Lamb & pasta (especially for Easter), finished off with 'blancmane'

......? :-D
