There’s nothing really ‘bad’ about horse meat, per se, but the problems stems from the veterinary drugs that may be found in a horse that would then be found in the food product.........
I’m being partially facetious - I do have a dark sense of humor - but on the other hand, it’s a distinct possibility.
When I first read that a lot of the horsemeat being found in Europe was coming out of Romanian abattoirs linked to Romanian organized crime, my first thought was, “Uh huh. Any unsolved disappearances in Romania lately, huh?”
It’s gross, to be sure, but it’s not a possibility I can’t entirely dismiss either.
