Yay or Neigh? Horsemeat Found at Burger King?!

Maybe you’ve read the recent headlines—or maybe you’ve missed them, but it appears that Burger King sold burgers tainted with horsemeat in the United Kingdom, Denmark, and Ireland. Don’t worry—there hasn’t been any found in the US… so far anyway.

Within the last week Burger King has gone from denying that there was horsemeat in their burgers, to admitting that they found 4% horse DNA in some of the meat from their European stores. Since that time the restaurant chain has cut their ties with Silvercrest, the supplier whose meat was responsible for the mishap. According to Burger King, their US restaurants have never received meat from this supplier; therefore state-side burgers should be horsemeat-free. From the research I could find, US Burger King restaurants use about 28 different “minority” beef suppliers and Silvercrest was never one of them.

Although horsemeat is not on the American menu, it is eaten safely in other locales of the world; though it’s not something I’d like to try (I prefer riding horses to eating them). Nonetheless, if you’re concerned about the possible presence of horsemeat in your burger for the next few weeks, I don’t blame you. Lucky for us, Burger King sells many non-beef menu items—and Jeatwell has quite a few picks that would rank as the “best choice” at the restaurant for all sorts of diets, click here to find out more.
