In a piece of highly disturbing news, Burger King has now admitted after continuous denial that itÂ hasÂ actually beenÂ selling UK customers both burgers and Whoppers that contain horsemeat. This admission comes just afterÂ The GuardianÂ reports that Burger King reps offered a round of âabsolute assurancesâ to customers that it did not ever use horsemeat in its products.
A series of tests done on the burger products now reveal that Burger King has been issuing completely phony statements, with burgers made for the fast food chain from the Irish company Silvercrest containing measurable levels of horsemeat. Itâs important to note this isÂ the same company that processes meat for Tesco, Asda, and the Co-op. The managers at Silvercrest have been revealed to be utilizing non-approved ingredients within their burger assortment âÂ even for âhousehold brandsâ.
Burger King Admits to Horsemeat in Whoppers, Burgers
Burger KingÂ admitted justÂ a few hours ago that the samples did in fact contain horsemeat:
âFour samples recently taken from the Silvercrest plant have shown the presence of very small trace levels of equine DNAâŠÂ we have established that Silvercrest used a small percentage of beef imported from a non-approved supplier in Poland.Â This is a clear violation of our specifications, and we have terminated our relationship with them.â
It is not yet clear which of these top brands could be containing such concerning ingredients as horse meat and other âmeat cut offsâ. What is known is thatÂ tens of thousands of burgersÂ from suppliers like Silvercrest and others in Germany have been shipped into Burger King alone to meet demand just in the UK. According to the Daily Mail report on the study results, the horsemeat contamination can be traced back to a full year, or at least since last May.
The investigation into this issue started after theÂ Food Safety Authority of Ireland found that burgers out of Ireland contained horsemeat. The disturbing findings highlight yet another reason not to consumer fast food, which contains a host of problematic substances such asÂ ingredients bannedÂ in other nations.
