If a stamp of “Slaughtered in America” means the meat is not horse meat, I am for it. There has been a rash of food sold in other countries that rather than beef, it is horse meat, or dog. Our FDA takes a dim view of that meat being sold in America.
I lived and worked in South America for almost 10-years. I could go into any major super market in Santiago or Lima and have my pick of Argentina beef, (highly over rated), Brazilian, Paraguay, or USA labeled beef.
I have never quite understood why the cattle industry has routinely resisted this? If anything, it would result in more USA-raised beef being sold...what will most people buy; ground round from the USA or from Mexico??
I have indeed seen many of the same reports.
What thav you got against eating horse meat?
I hear there is a new slaughter house for horses being established in new Mexico.
