Gallery: Aldi Supermarkets Find Up To 100% Horse Meat in Some Beef Prod...


In the latest development in the horse meat scandal, the Aldi supermarket chain just announced that some of its frozen beef products were found to contain up to 100 percent horse meat. The affair started in mid-January when food inspectors in Ireland found horse meat in burgers stocked by several UK supermarkets – including Tesco, Iceland and Lidl. The Food Standards Agency will meet the environment secretary, food suppliers and retailers on Saturday to discuss the issue.

    And, this is a shock. McDonalds and Burger King in Canada, I think, found 1% horse meat in their burgers. I expect there\\\’s horse meat in meat sold in the US, too. I look at meat in the grocery store in a different way now. I have been a vegetarian for almost a year now and very healthy. Working on becoming a vegan. The only safe place to buy meat is at a butcher shop, and one can only wonder about their meat, too. The only way to really control this situation is to stop horse slaughtering, stop horse exports for slaughter and make it illegal to slaughter horses for meat. That\\\’s a start. Besides, there\\\’s dangerous chemicals in the majority of farmed animals, too. HELLO.

    To Elizabeth Dana – this was found in the UK and it did not come from the USA. Also, ALDI did their own testing of the meat they bought from OTHER SUPPLIERS, they were checking on it themselves. They were not trying to hide it. Thankfully they are honest enough to let customers know. That is a rare move in a corporate world. At least they were being honest. I would go back and get other things and wait until the meat issue has been resolved. Don’t boycott a place because they tested their supplier and then warned the customers.

    Horse meat has sooooo much drugs tumors cancer etc…horses ARE NOT meat animals….ating horsemeat is liking going to the local cat and dog kill center and hitting the dogs and cats enough to knock them out for 2 minutes then string them up and gut them alive…EUROPE WAKE UP that horsemeat came from horses sold at auctions or stolen by kill buyers who run around picking up any and all damned horses they can get their hands on….over 10 percent of them die before they get to the slaughter house with ripped open bellies legs dragged through trailer bottoms on roads….OUT LAW HORSE MEAT FROM AMERICA…

    Wow. Aldi got it from Comigel, Comigel got it from Spangero. Even if I bought legit beef, I’d rather eat fresh horse meat than any meat that was passed through half of Europe before ending up in my fridge.
