    I voted no, but i am a veggie, so would vote the same on any burger made with a dead animal.

    I don't eat burgers or sausages. I know what went in them, even before horse-meat.

    They call sausages (snags) 'mystery bags' in Oz - maybe the mystery has been solved?

    Sausages and burgers are the scrapings off the abbotoir floor.
    Usually a white looking mush which has a colour additive added to make it look nice.

    I'd say the real scandal here is the perfectly edible food being 'withdrawn from sale' and presumably destroyed.

    At less than half price but clearly labelled I would have no hesitation in filling my freezer!

    Clearly labelled as what though?? Shergar Lasagne? Red Rum burgers? The loser of the 3:30 at Plumpton pies. ;) ;) ;) ;)

    Only time I think I've eaten horse meat was in France. I'd ordered steak in a restaurant, and to be quite honest, if that was steak, then my uncle was the Pope.

    Never mind horses in burgers,

    I think I've found Heather Mills' missing leg in my Linda McCartney sausages.

    :LOL:

    In the days of long ago, when I ate meat, I had no problem eating animals as long as I knew what it was before I put it into my mouth.

    The horse / donkey/ whatever should be resold as long as it can be identified and passed as FFHC. If not, it should be sold as pet food.

    Aaaaaand they're off!
