Please Sign: Tell UK to Get Horse Meat Out of Its Hamburger

- 988 days ago -
Horse meat was found in hamburger sold at supermarkets in the UK and Ireland. Out of 27 products labeled as "beef" that were tested, over a third contained horse DNA and most contained pig. Food Standards says it doesn't know why, but animal activists do.

Signed, though I have to say that,from a vegetarian perspective, I don't really understand the enormous difference between eating horse and pigs, cows, sheep, whatever.

It's just a question of upbringing, really. Read a Dutch guy the other day saying that they eat horse meat and don't understand what all the fuss is about.

Signed. The thought of any animal being cruely murdered for us to consume is gross. Stop eatong the tortured flesh of animals.

NOT FACTUAL! The DNA is just that......DNA, not horse meat. Horsemeat is also quite legal to sell and consume in Europe. This is a highly misleading and unfactual article..............the U.K. is against (dones not condone) the consumption of horse meat...............PERIOD.
