Findus has tonight admitted that it has been selling packs of its popular frozen lasagne that were 99 per cent horsemeat.
The news is the first time that it has been confirmed that horsemeat contamination of products sold in the UK has spread beyond beef burgers.
There are concerns that the horse meat used in the lasagne contained the drug bute, which is a known human health risk. Findus was today unable to say how long horsemeat has been used in its products.

“the horse meat used in the lasagne contained the drug bute”
might this explain Prince Charles?
IMHO, this proves that horse meat is a heck of a lot tastier than what it sounds like.
Dog and cat meat probably is too.
Is “bute” the same as incest?
How could lasagne be 99% meat of any kind?
That leaves only 1% to be pasta, cheese, tomato sauce etc.
Unlike in Britain, there is no taboo against eating horse meat in France, and it remains very popular in a number of restaurants in Paris, and other parts of the country, as well as in specialist butchers.
So, I’d think that importing anything with “masked meat” from France wouold be a non-starter, n’cest pas?
Could consumers taste the difference?
No I suspect he is the result of too much royal in-breeding.
How did the lasagne taste? The best sausage I ever got in Germany was probably horsemeat (much to the delight of some German girls who worked in my office!).
So the pasta, cheese, and tomato sauce were only 1% of the lasagna? Didn’t people notice?
I have always found Chihuahua burritos way too spicy.
1% bull balls.
The meat is 99% Horse and 1% other.
Findus has to be the best name for criminals since Bernie Madoff
I was just snarking on how the headline was written.
The tabloid version of this story: “Sarah Jessica Parker Cannibalism Shocker!”
Is horse Hay fal?
I was thinking about that, LOL!
twenty-four to 30 inches on average
I’m sure I could run about 50% faster after eating that lasagna!;)
“Dog and cat meat probably is too.”
My Indian name is A Man Called Horse!
That’s just what I thought. If horsemeat wasn’t tasty, then this particular brand of lasagna would not be so popular.
Given the health of the NHS, people should be relieved that it was horse meat, and not “long pork.”
Yes and they call me Totem for short.
Findus found foul filling.
John Kerry must have ate some-thus the long face.
One episode of All in the Family had Edith finding out the meal she cooked contained horsemeat.
Archie: I gotta admit (unaware), you cooked up a real winner tonight.
Mike (who knows): Pretty close, Arch (bangs his hands down on his thighs to simulate hoofbeats)
Archie: Look at that, he doesn’t even use a napkin, the slob!
(Edith runs into kitchen, distraught)
Edith: I can’t help it. It’s from a horse...I mean,
the Queen RIDES a horse
Gloria: Ma, they say it tastes just like chicken
Edith: But the Queen don’t RIDE a chicken!
Bute = phenylbutazone. It’s an NSAID, used like aspirin for minor pain or inflammation, and can cause ulcers in horses if given for too long a time.
Still, people should not be ingesting it.
Well they do say over time a husband and wife start looking more alike.
I thought it meant that the meat was 99% horsemeat and I was wondering what kinbd of meat the other 1% was.
“Parts is parts.”
horse meat tastes just fine...it is the psycological thing that keeps most people from wanting it....
The solution is to rebute
I like Findus, but I prefer their crispy pancakes.
I don't understand the controversy.
In Europe horse meat is popular and generally more expensive than beef.
So they should be charging extra for their lasagna.
In my travels I have had both horsemeat and donkey,the former served as steak, the latter in a sort of fried sandwich, like a stuffed pita, and also grilled with onions and green peppers.
Both are delicious. The donkey is a little fattier where the horse is very lean, but I don’t know if that is just from the cut, or is true in general. I could see horse being inherently leaner, just like deer and elk are.
The emotional attachment to horses - especially in the states - is the issue. But wasting the meat, especially for an animal that has been well fed its whole life, IS a waste.
I knew a friend in the country where I ate the donkey meat. Her mother raised chickens, but every once in a while she would get attached to one and give it a name. She killed the others for food and to sell, but pampered the named ones until they passed, then buried them.
People - what are you gonna do with ‘em...
I dinno, laddie, I claim the Scots as my main vein but it kinna be denied I carry Irish, English and French lines as well. I was told of a famous Am. Indian ancestor when I was a wee lad but it turns out me dear pater was blowin’ smoke up muh kilt. My surname is old Gaelic for ‘Carries ‘is Own Caber.’ ;^)
My earlier comment, BTW, was referring to Medieval Chinese characters in kung fu movies. I get a kick out of some of the outfits, social behaviors and drumbeats, knowing full well that many a Chinese person would be at least a little bothered by my joking comparisons to, say, Cherokee, or those of some of the Iroquois nations.
Reminds me of the old Benny Hill routine.
Waiter: Would you like some rabbit soup?
Customer: I heard your rabbit soup had horse meat in it.
Customer: How much?
Waiter: About Fifty/Fifty.
Waiter: Yes. One horse, one rabbit.
