In the wake of recent revelations that quantities of horsemeat have been found in beef burgers for sale in the United Kingdom and Ireland, Humane Society International affirms that there is widespread confusion about the origin of horsemeat in the European food chain as well as an aversion to eating horses, as indicated in a recent survey by Ipsos MORI. HSI also raises concerns about inadequate labelling and potential health risks.
