EWA/WHFF Expose illegal Horse Meat Shipments through Port of Houston TX



(Note – I try to keep the articles and posts on this website different from RT Fitch’s “Straight From the Horse’s Heart” so that we can spread the word even further. This article is different – complete evidence that horsemeat shipments are being made from Mexico to the Port of Houston, then on to other countries, an act that is against Texas law. Thanks to the investigators of EWA and the WHFF, the documentation is here for you and everyone else to see. Will it be acted upon? Or will the “authorities” turn a blind eye because of pressure from those who make money off the bodies of dead horses? In looking at the shipping data, note how much horsemeat (contaminated with drugs) is being shipped to Russia and Belgium)

    If you compare this to the interactive map from the EU I was looking at last night..it shows no incoming from the US..however..Belgium contributes the most horsemeat..your report needs to go to the EU officials..because they are missing evidence…I certainly have felt all along that horsemeat from mexico and canada would be coming back across our borders..I have been asking the FDA at their website contact..to provide proof of testing for horsemeat and the statistics on a website so we can follow it..no response..we need a campaign to contact them

  • I think it is disgusting that contaminated horse meat is being shipped through Houston, TX although it is against the law for it to be so. To Europe????? Well the market better dry up for when they start checking up on documents??? I wonder if they will start checking up on documents/passports or will they just start saying they did???
