MIAMI, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Burger King will reportedly test its meat to

Burger King addressed this topic after it was disclosed that Silvercrest
Foods sold beef products containing horse meat to other retailers.
According to the company’s 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.
