Meat industry under scrutiny as horsemeat scandal spreads is the headline of the article. Again, the bloody fingerprints of globalization are all over the story:
The French arm of Swedish frozen food firm Findus said it would file a legal complaint Monday against the unnamed Romanian business.Swedish company making Italian lasagna in France with (alleged) Romanian horses inside. A pretty mess that. The only solution for everyone who wants his/her particular meat source to moo, neigh, bark or meow is to take the desired animal through all the stages of the process him/herself. This is the sad outcome of globalization in the culinary domain, it appears.
Findus said it had been told that its products were being made with French beef, not Romanian horsemeat.
As for that Swedish company or, rather, its French branch, they should reconsider their philosophy a bit, when issuing hasty statements like this one:
"We were deceived," said a Findus France statement. "There are two victims in this affair: Findus and the consumer."How about them horses?
