Burger King DNA Testing for Horse Meat

One of Burger King’s food processors imported beef that contained horse meat, but they didn’t use it in their burgers and just dumped the company.


From Bloomberg

Burger King will test specifically for equine DNA following revelations that food processor Silvercrest Foods sold beef products containing horse meat to other retailers, including Tesco. Both companies have severed ties with Silvercrest, and Tesco has also said it will do DNA testing on all of its meat products.

Burger King says there is no horse meat in its burgers, only “100% pure Irish and British beef.” The problem was, Silvercrest imported some meat from a Polish supplier which contained “very small trace levels” of horse meat.
