Burger King will reportedly test its meat to make sure it is 100 percent beef after horse DNA was found in beef products from one of its food processors.
Diego Beamonte, Burger Kings vice president of global quality, told Bloomberg Businessweek that details for DNA testing have not been worked out, and no timeline has been set for implementing the new procedures.
Burger King addressed this topic after it was disclosed that Silvercrest Foods sold beef products containing horse meat to other retailers.

“Except for false advertising, whats the problem?”
The problem is they report finding horse DNA. If the processor is trying to cheat by slipping in horse, what makes you think they were only using the choice cuts?
For all we know it was all lips and arseholes. Or worse.
Well, Burger King is known for it’s Whoppers, after all...
I’ll have a quarter horse burger, two lumps of sugar, an apple, and a large order of oat fries...to go “And they’re off!”
The above article unfairly and inaccurately leaves out that the meat was sold to BK by a rogue Polish sub-distributor and reached areas only in the UK, Ireland and Denmark.....and was not sold in any restaurants, either....in Europe or here. Plug key words into your search engine and read the facts.
What about hairless goat?
meat is meat...probably leaner...
LMAO! And the spuds are turnips.
In China, any non-human creature under 20 foot tall is stir fry!
Who was it who once said that the Chinese will eat:
Anything with four legs except a table,
Anything with wings except an airplane,
Anything that swims except a submarine.
Now....Chinese history abounds with terrible times of famine, we may joke but should not judge. The ordinary greeting among us is “How are you doing?” In China the greeting is “Have you eaten today?”
The King's triple crown menu is a whoa-per of a deal.
Part of their new low-fat diet of course...isn't horse meat supposed to be lean?
So if they serve horse in the U.K. do they serve real hot 'dogs' in China? Instead of surf and turf you could have woof and hoof.
Just lead your burger to some water and see what happens!
