Recall on Burger Patties Containing Horse Meat


Visitors: 292

An Irish meat processor recalled 10 million burgers Wednesday from supermarkets. This recall is taking place across Ireland and Britain. The recall was made amid fears that many could contain horsemeat. The horsemeat does not pose any danger to public health but threatens to undermine the beef business central to Ireland's rural economy.

Silvercrest Foods is Ireland's second-largest processor of beef burgers. They took the action after the Food Safety Authority of Ireland problem's in the DNA tests. The tests explained that the patties on sale found tiny traces of horsemeat. The experts were not surprised of finding this in the meats. This is because the slaughterhouses handled multiple types of meats.

What did surprise the investigators was that one burger among 27 tested contained 29 percent horsemeat. Tesco, the British supermarket giant that sold the discount burger brand in question, apologized and said either fraud or incompetence was to blame.

"There is a full investigation going on as to how the imported additives got into the system and where they came from. This is very important for Ireland's reputation, " Prime Minister Enda Kenny told reporters at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France.

It can be easy to settle for a replaced product or a small insurance company payout when it comes to food recalls. However, victims of tainted food have rights and can sue in court to collect damages designed to compensate for the costs of medical treatment, lost wages, and future treatment.
