Americans now eating horse meat - how much worse can it get?

I don't know what's worse.
Artificial calimari (made from pig bung) or hamburgers made from horse meat.
But this is what it takes to give the average american something he barely can afford (a 99 cent happy meal).
Such is life when you're going down the toilet...
================= Burger King To DNA Test Its Beef After Food Processor Used Horse Meat

MIAMI, Fla. (CBS Tampa) 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.
According to the companys statement to PR Newsire, Burger King says it will test specifically for equine DNA.
Burger King told Businessweek that it dropped dealings with Silvercrest after learning that meat supplied by the distribution company contained horse meat. Burger King went on to say that product from Silvercrest was never sold in their stores.
We will dedicate ourselves to determining what lessons can be learned and what additional measures, including DNA testing and enhanced traceability controls, can be taken to ensure that we continue to provide you with the quality products you expect from us, Burger King stated in a press release to Newswire.
Burger King says they are committed to using suppliers that only produce 100 percent beef products.
(does that include cow anus?)

Home Guy is a damn Canadian, some places cabbage cost $28.00 a head.
Do try to keep up. Hench has him all figured out, already. Most people here already have his number.
He is in the toilet, publicly, stealing intellectual movies and such from the Internet.
I suspect he is trying to make his goat have babies, but I have no video evidence of him and his goat. He won't tell me how he gets his goat to push back.

In Canada, horsemeat is available. You can order it in some restaurants. France too.
Aside from eating Flicker, it is really not a big deal. Tons of it are eaten every year.

What's wrong with eating horse meat? Why is a cow less deserving of your respect?

That's right, harry, what you do with the goat in your bedroom is between you and Mrs. goat.

The basis for horse meat being a taboo food in most/many countries is a long and complicated story.
Not only does the wiki article say that a Kentucky Derby winner was believed slaughtered for Japanese pet food, but has this par in that regard:
// There is a misconception that horses are commonly slaughtered for pet food, however. In many countries, like the United States, horse meat was outlawed in pet food in the 1970s. American horse meat is considered a delicacy in Europe and Japan, and its cost is in line with veal,[36] so it would be prohibitively expensive in many countries for pet food. // http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horsemeat
