Well, what do we think of this latest food 'scare'?
In the UK we've had a few.....
I remember Mum taking the tins of salmon off the pantry shelf - salmonella scare
Eggs with Edwina (only imported of course) - btw they get wet in the fridge, better out.
BSE and dodgy worn-out old cows in the food chain - then security was upped with animal passports, (Yep we put our hands up here in UK - while other countries kept schtum).
Now horses for main courses?
Hubby was a butcher, none of this came through the butchers or UK Abbatoirs- it's only supermarkets buying in cheap stuff (from the cheapest supplier - i.e. not from the UK - it's just not allowed!) Apparently upping the protein level with 'supplement protein powder' of unknown origin is fine.
No wonder folks think a vegetarian lifestyle is safe, no wonder us carnivores are poorly too.
