LAST night Burger King admitted that it's been selling burgers containing traces of horse meat.

The fast food chain - which has more than 500 UK outlets and sells around one million burgers per week - had previously denied that its products were involved in the infamous scandal that happened just a few weeks ago.

These contaminated burgers were made by the Irish-based processing company, Silvercrest. 

In a statement, Burger King abandoned its earlier denials, saying: ‘'Four samples recently taken from the Silvercrest plant have shown the presence of very small trace levels of equine DNA. They promised to deliver 100 per cent British & Irish beef patties and have not done so. This is a clear violation of our specifications, and we have terminated our relationship with them.''

WABers, is this going to put you off from heading to Burger King outlets in the area?
