THE discovery of horse meat in products labeled as beef in the European Union has raised serious questions, not just about food labeling, but also about food safety and the working of the somewhat opaque, global horse meat industry.

While the authorities in Brussels and various E.U. member states continue their investigations related to the scandal, there are questions unrelated to accurate labeling that must now be asked of industry and government regulators.

    so most horse meat comes from the usa ! well what ever country the poor horses are slaughtered in the word “inhumane” comes to mind. there are no morals here, no compassion,no humanity at all. just a sick buisness. no animal whether horse cow pig sheep chicken should ever ever suffer !! to dupe people into thinking they are eating beef and theres horse meat in it is telling you something !! i wish the world would become vege/vegan ( you would only then know what you are really eating). only the people in the slaughter houses see the suffering, only the the companies know whats in the food they sell, if you think you can trust anyone in this sick buisness your wrong.

    Lets hope that more and more consumers in Europe simply stop buying horse meat. That would stop most of the horse killing. With no customers it will die out.
