Food Fraud Hits a New Low with the Potential Emergence of Dog Meat in the UK

The food fraud story has now progressed from somewhat humorous with the undersized Subway footlong subs, to the highly disturbing with the revelations of horse meat and fake tuna, to the really creepy with the now potential emergence of dog meat in UK lamb curry.  No you can’t print lamb folks, which is exactly why many humans are now eating worse than their pets in the Western world.

A mystery meat, which has defied the best efforts of scientists to identify it, has been found in a lamb curry as part of an investigation into food fraud.

The discovery raises new questions about just what is going into the nation’s takeaways and processed foods.

The meat in a Beef in Black Bean Sauce dish turned out to contain high levels of chicken material including blood, while a burger contained no beef at all, other than blood and heart.

However, most alarming of all was a curry. A spokesman for the programme said: ‘Just when we thought things couldn’t get any worse, the results came in for an Indian Lamb Curry.

‘It did contain meat, but that meat was not lamb, not pork, nor was it chicken or beef. Not horse, and not goat either.

All of the many tests to date by the lab used by the programme have failed to identify exactly which animal was the source of the meat.

The revelation raises many grim possibilities. There is evidence from Spain, for example, of meat from dog carcasses being processed for use in pet food.

At the same time, a meat cutting plant in Wales has been accused of supplying horsemeat from an abattoir in Yorkshire to companies making kebabs and burgers for hundreds of independent take-aways.

Don’t worry mate, your savior George Osborne will simply create a housing bubble and you’ll be so distracted that dirt will soon taste good.  Cheers!

  1. Is it going to take the discovery of “soylent green,” so to speak, in the food supply chain before people in the West turn away from the Industrial Food, Industrial Farming, and Warehouse Food Distribution model of how they get their daily sustenance?
    We are quite literally being slopped like pigs, i.e. being fed the waste of other processes.
    …it is to weep.

    • The human meat scandals are coming soon if its not already happening somewhere. They’ll flavor it real good with high fructose corn syrup and whatever else and it won’t be on the news, so nobody will worry too much about it.

  2. I’m hungry.
