Also of note is that the Guardian UK reports that British authorities were aware that tonnes of condemned horsemeat was being imported for use by suspected fraudsters as long ago as 1998 but failed to investigate the criminal networks involved fully for lack of resources.

    I went to the site and left a comment. The other comments are saying not to eat horse meat from the US. So this is is spreading about the drugs in horse meat but I believe they think the meat is shipped from the US. I told them it is from US horses shipped to Canada/Mexico for slaughter. Every one needs to leave a comment telling them that the horse meat is from US horses shipped to Canada/Mexico for slaughter.
