Across Israel and Palestine, thousands of horses, donkeys and mules are used to do work and provide livelihoods for their owners. Overloading, untreated lameness and wounds are just some of the resulting problems the animals face.

Horse meat found in salami


Consumers could be unwittingly eating horse meat
Salami on sale in the UK could contain horse and donkey meat, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has revealed.
The warning follows an investigation into the exact ingredients of salamis and similar products such as chorizo and pastrami.

Local authorities in Hull, Durham, Northumberland, North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire tested 24 salamis.

Three of the samples were found to contain horse meat - but none of them declared it in the list of ingredients.

Rosemary Hignett, the FSA's head of food labelling, said: "There are concerns that UK consumers could unwittingly be eating horse and perhaps donkey meat when they buy salami or a similar product.


Salami was tested in...
Durham
Hull
Northumberland
North Yorkshire
West Yorkshire
"Some people may prefer not to eat these products, even though food safety is not the issue and they are often traditional recipes."

Ms Hignett said the FSA was now planning to undertake a major survey of salami-type products to reveal the extent of the problem.

She added: "It is important that people know what they are eating and can make an informed choice about whether or not they want to eat it."

The Agency will investigate more than 100 meats from supermarkets, delicatessens and catering suppliers over the summer.

ONE DAY HUMANS WILL PAY FOR THE DREADFUL DEEDS.

As soon as I saw this news item, I thought of Black Beauty. It is good to hear of people who are making positive change. Pegasus sounds like a good group. Thank you Zvika Tamuz and WSPA!

Thanks Eco, I agree 100% percent. One day humans will pay for all what they have done to animals.
Humans are evil and monsters, they are no longer human!

What a wonderful story. It's wonderful to see that one man can make a huge difference in this world. Let's all help by sending a donation (whatever u can afford) to show support to this great cause. Thank you for all that u do.

When I see photographs of donkeys loaded down, looking as thought they are about to collapse under the strain of their burden my heart aches for them. They are treated with less respect than a mechanical device. Its loathsome. i know this is the only means of transport for some poor people but there has to be a maximum weight that the donkeys can carry without being permanently crippled .
Horse raising is another sport that shows scant regard for the long term welfare of the animal. Many having to be put down if they break a leg.
Why do we have to use and abuse animals? They have a right to be treated with respect.

It's sad that we force these animals to work so hard and let them get in bad shape.
