Well, at least horse meat has less half the cholesterol of beef and more omega-3 :D

They have admitted that a supplier was providing meat with traces of horse DNA, in breach of their contract, and that the supplier is no longer used. Your wording did kind of sound like it was done on purpose and they were found out.

The wording was accusatory, and unfair. Also, only Burger King franchises in the U.K. were affected.

But do they still sell pink slime? (McDonalds's stopped doing that.) I don't eat that stuff anymore, anyway.

In all seriousness, I've quit eating at fast food joints years ago as part of my diet regimen. I make my own healthy food at home. So glad I chose that route.

Why is it disgusting? Did anyone who ate the burgers complain that they tasted funny? Has anyone, at any point, claimed that there was any danger to health? It's not like they contained horse manure, they contained traces of horse meat. Why is it OK to slaughter a living cow, mince up its flesh and cook it, but it isn't OK to do the same with a horse?

What do customers expect when they got to eat in places like that?

These type of places are for junk food junkies.

I had one for lunch recently and on the way back to work popped into a shop to be met with the headline "Shergar King" atop the Sun newspaper.

Made me laugh all afternoon.

XL bacon double cheese, please, in the 13:30 at Wincanton.

Because it's junk meat, horse or whatever.

That stuff usually tastes funny!

Yes! Over the past several years.

Fast food burgers have contained deadly E-Coli bacteria. Which is . . . what it is.

Well, for one thing, cattle are born for that purpose. Most of those cattle would not have even lived if not for food. But, still, it's garbage. People should question where their food comes from. At least a little bit.

Last time I ate at Mickey Dees, I barfed. That was it.

With millions of burgers sold daily across thousands of establishments, it's inevitable that some food poisoning incidents will occur. It's not just fast food places either.

It was mmm good. Horse or no horse!

You don't like fast food. I get it. You couldn't just say it, you had to waffle on like you always do, but I get it. However, that has nothing to do with the fact that horse meat is no different than beef or pork, in fact it's probably better for you.

No, I don't like fast food. Didn't think I waffled! LOL! Anyway, I was just having a bit of fun.

I used to eat that stuff all the time. (Even did a lot of time at The Waffle House!)

I suppose you could argue that "horse" would be a step up. ;)

two friends are eating at Burger King and here's their conversation:

guy #1 : So...how's your burger?
guy #2 : This tastes like something that might have won the first race at Santa Anita last week?
guy #1 : Awwww!....who told you?
guy #1 : Hey do you still play the lottery?
guy #2 : Sure do! But i never win. I need a horseshoe for good luck.
guy #1 : here....rub my Whopper instead.
guy #2 : How will that bring me luck?
guy #1 : ....because my burger used to be attached to a horseshoe! :smt005

Wendy's "Hot and Juicy" does it every time. I seldom do fast food, but I have always enjoyed a burger from Burger King.

Regardless of what animal is on the menu for the day.
