People in the UK are beefing on about the contents of their Lasagne and other dodgy meat products such as pies and sausages and the always a bit suss hamburger..
It seems Britain's Horse Meat scandal has backing from the Government and is advising people not to eat beef lasagne made in France and sold under the 'Findus' brand due to the product containing 100% Horse meat.
Two weeks ago, the food safety authority of Ireland had revealed up to 29 % of the meat content of some beef burgers was in fact Horse meat, while they also found pig DNA. The frozen burgers were on sale in most supermarket throughout Britain.
The consumption of horse meat is quite common in France and neighbouring EU countries.
Makes one wonder how long this has been going on . Mind you I recall Sydney in the early seventies having a similar problem. Anyone remember this sing song slogan on local radio, "Hurry on down to Harty's - Where the burgers are barbecued" , Harty's were nobbled for adding local fauna meat to their dodgy burgers, and who really knows what muck we are expected to eat, I very much doubt if the Angus beef with no added hormones applies to all of the beef we are eating at takeaways. it would not surprise me if a mix of Buffalo, Roo and Camel could be supplementing a bit of horse from the knackers yard.
However, eating unspecified nosh is what a lot of Aussies find yummy. Personally; to me Sino chow is my biggest turn off. Have you ever travelled to Formosa (Taiwan) and enjoyed a Chinese meal when in the back of your mind you may be aware that 3 or 4 times more Dog meat is eaten than other meaty dishes from bear and other odd tasting things on four legs. Most sane persons would avoid the encounter with Chinese nosh, the highest patronage would be from first time adventurists and hungry bombed out drunks who deserve all they get, and it is a fact that more people suffer from an attack of worm infestation after eating Chinese and Indian nosh than any other foodstuffs
Bon appetite. .. Vest back soon. Enjoy your Lasagne
I would like to have a few comments on this saga from my friends and relatives in the UK, which in it self would be a first off. I wonder who will be first/
