Horsemeat found in prepared burgers in UK & Ireland Supermarket supply chain

cavemanu | Jan 16, 2013 10:26 AM

In the UK there has very recently been a supply chain recall regarding prepared burgers from a number of larger European supermarket supply chains, following analysis conducted by the Irish Food Safety Agency

AFAIK, I've not eaten these myself, as I'm personally not a fan of the generic supermarket brand pre-made frozen meat patty and prefer to make my own burgers from scratch.

Was wondering how fellow C'hounders opinions about this type of product mis-description / supply chain failure.

This happened in Europe - does this type of food issue occur in the US?
