Would you eat horse meat?
There is a scandal involving frozen meals (moussaka, lasagna, spaghetti bolognese, etc.) from a French distributor, that have been sold throughout Europe, labelled as “beef,” but which have been found to contain as much as 100% horse meat.
Obviously this is a case of false advertising and the French Agricultural Ministry has declared this event “a matter of criminal fraud.” Le Monde hastens to point out that the meat is in fact “of Romanian origin.”
What is your reaction to this story? Have you ever eaten or would you eat horse meat? Why or why not?
I am mostly disturbed at the thought that all of this meat is likely going to go to waste. The horses have already been killed.
