Horse or Cow - meat is meat. I would guess they taste about the same.

I'm just happy that there's at least some real meat in them.

when you bargain for, and purchase, cow, you should be served cow.
not charged for cow, and served free dead horsemeat.

just more of the 21st century ~ "steal from anyone, anyway you can"  mode

DUBLIN (AP) - An Irish meat processor recalled 10 million burgers Wednesday from supermarkets across Ireland and Britain amid fears that many could contain horsemeat, a discovery that poses no danger to public health but threatens to undermine the beef business central to Ireland's rural economy.

Silvercrest Foods, Ireland's second-largest processor of beef burgers, took the action after the Food Safety Authority of Ireland revealed that DNA tests of patties on sale found tiny traces of horsemeat in more than a third. Experts said the finding was not surprising, given that meat refrigeration units and slaughterhouses would handle multiple kinds of meat and molecular transfers were inevitable.

But investigators were surprised to find that one burger among 27 tested contained 29 percent horsemeat. Tesco, the British supermarket giant that sold the discount burger brand in question, apologized and said either fraud or incompetence was to blame.

Silvercrest and government leaders said suspicion was focusing on a powdered beef-protein additive imported from both Spain and the Netherlands for use in padding out the most cheaply priced burgers, which contain typically 60 percent to 70 percent meat. They declined to identify either supplier by name because investigations were continuing, and a multi-million lawsuit for damages was likely.

"There is a full investigation going on as to how the imported additives got into the system and where they came from. This is very important for Ireland's reputation," Prime Minister Enda Kenny told reporters at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France.

Health authorities stressed Ireland's policy of occasionally DNA testing food was exceptional, given that most countries don't bother checking for non-health issues in food at all. They said such testing, if repeated worldwide, would likely find much more widespread mislabeling of meat and fish products and traces of the "wrong" meats in processed foods.

With all the fillers and seasonings that fast food places use the average joe would never know what the hell kinds of meat they are eating.

I can't help but post here and there.  I got a good laugh out of that Earl. You are so right!   But I eat them for my once every couple weeks junk food fix.  Not always but everyone I know (even health food nuts) have to have those two tacos for 99cents once in a while!

Some of my younger friends use them for a hangover cure.

Back in the day, there was nothing like a Jack "Super Taco", Bonus Jack, and onions rings to hit the spot at 2:00 a.m.

Never did like those little regular tacos, though.

You've got to tell me what a "Bonus Jack" is, it sounds delectible!

I am guilty but we should not eat ground beef unless you make your own or buy from a little butcher who does it. In the past, I would eat it medium rare, but I cook the crap out of it now...literally.

Last time I was at Jack (10 years?), they didn't make them anymore, but it looks like they are (or were briefly) back. Kind of the Jack version of the Big Mac, but with lots of secret sauce so it doesn't have that famous Big Mac dried up sawdust taste.

apparently , the pressence of "BUTE" has been detected in the family's dinner meal...great

horsemeat dinner, with free steroids...mmmmmm

can't get enough of that phenylbutazone.....mm..mmmm

This is a conspiracy against the public," said British farm minister Owen Paterson. "I've got an increasing feeling that it is actually a case of an international criminal conspiracy."

Prime Minister David Cameron has called it "very shocking."

Adding to concerns are indications that some horse meat, perfectly edible in itself, may contain a drug known as bute -- a common anti-inflammatory painkiller for sporting horses but banned for animals intended for eventual human consumption.

Britain's Food Standards Agency said it was checking whether horse carcasses exported from Britain contained phenylbutazone. It said five such animals were sold abroad last year and it had told foreign agencies. French media said the horses went there.
