Put That Burger Down Right Now. Burger King Confesses To Mix Horse Meat In Their Products.

While fast food is not the best thing for our us and our bodies, it is pretty justified for us to expect that at least the ingredients in our products are the same as disclosed to us by the manufacturers.

But sadly that is no longer the case in today’s capitalist economy where food manufacturers do not care about the health and well being of their consumers.
In a shocking instance, after countless denials in the past, one of the leading fast food chain, Burger King has finally admitted to using horse meat in their products.

When confronted earlier about the issue, Burger King strongly denied doing such thing ever. But after a series of tests made by the food safety authority has made it clear that Burger King was actually lying the whole time.
It is reported that the company handling the processing of meat for Burger King burgers, SilverCrest have a small amount of horse meat in their products.

And if this was not bad enough, it is said that the horse meat contamination is not new to the company and that such practices have been going on for over a year now. 
About the whole situation, Burger King has said, “Four samples taken from the Silvercrest plant have shown the presence of small traces of Equine DNA. This is a clear violation of our specifications and we have terminated our relationship with them.”
 
But to be fair , the company’s apologies don’t mean much to its customers worldwide who have been deeply disappointed by the company’s failure to maintain hygiene standards.
