Who is funding the USDA inspectors since we've had to CUT USDA meat inspectors for conventional meats due to the sequestration...and even so...why should American taxpayers foot the bill for private industry profits that have no benefit to US citizens...nor anyone in the world since there is no way of knowing what horsemeat is tainted with drugs.

Good! Horses should not be slaughtered and eaten. They should be living in a pasture somewhere with lots of green grass, other horses for socialization, and compassionate humans to take care of them.
