HORSE MEAT SEAFOOD FRAUD-TIME TO GO VEGETARIAN?

A recent two-year study on American seafood found compelling evidence of “seafood fraud.” Researchers found fish sold as snapper and tuna were likely to be mislabeled, 87 and 59 percent of the time, respectively. Overall, one-third of all samples used for the study were misidentified out of over a thousand samples taken.

Recently, The New York Times reported that for the first time since 2007, the USDA may allow the opening of a horse meat slaughtering establishment in New Mexico. If approved, horse meat would not necessarily be available in the Unites States for human consumption any time soon, but it’s understandable that the risk for cross-contamination might be a legitimate fear, given the situation in Europe and the greater proximity of this meat.

Because, “federal regulations require slaughterhouses to choose either cattle or horses to process,” according to ABC News, there is “little risk of horse meat tainting the beef supply in those countries where it is distributed,” authorities say.

But is there no risk? That was not stated.

What you eat is your business, meat lovers. I just wonder if in the last few days, given certain news stories, you’ve ever questioned what’s in your food as I have.(Demetria L. Lucas)

What's the difference in heating horse meat than any other meat we eat today?

It must be that horses has feelings unlike cows and chickens.

The difference may be...that were not accustomed to eating horse meat in the United States. There's no grocery store, meat market or restaurant or hunters selling horse Meat knowingly. I know people that sell Coon, Deer and Possum meat. Don't eat that either...

Hardly any meat produced on the corporate farms now is as healthy as it was fifty years ago.
