Burger King Reveals Its Burgers Also Contained Horse Meat

Friday February 1 2013

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?

I agree with Key if nobody had said anything we would all be eating them still. So do we now go round checking all our foods to see what is in them if we did I expect there would not be much left to eat
