Burger King To DNA Test Its Beef After
Food Processor Used Horse Meat


February 1, 2013

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 King’s 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 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.

stupid people spend a lot of money keeping really old horses alive, shouldn't we be feeding the poor with this horsemeat?

Seasoned and slow cooked, I'll bet it's delicious.

horse meat is common fare in lots of places. If you're willing to eat other animals, what's the difference?

and if you're expecting real food from burger king, well, I don't know what to tell ya...

Haven't eaten there in many years. The last time I walked in, it smelled like pukey grease. Horse meat woulda improved the smell........hate all those fast food places and my stomach can't handle any of that crap.

Easy remedy here and to lose weight. Dont' go to any fast food. Worked for me.
I lost weight and was never hungry. Eating just as much and losing weigh says
enough about fast food.

Edit: I do like the Wendy's Chili every once and a while.
