Please share – 2 out of 10 mislabeled samples of American ground meat contain horse meat.

A doctoral student’s study of ground meat samples came up with the heartbreaking conclusion there is horse meat in our commercial food sources. Yesterday, we posted on article about this – yet most Americans still do not realize what they are eating. 48 samples were examined – 10 of which were mislabeled – and 2 had horse meat. This news has NOT hit the major outlets yet, so many people do not know. We need to demand better labeling practices not weaker ones. This past summer there has been action by our government representatives to weaken food labeling. This is the opposite of what is needed. Country of origin, exactly what is contained in the meat, nutritional information – all these things are important.

Do we want our kids to eat horse meat? There is a chance they already have.

Spread the news – share on Facebook, Twitter – everywhere you socialize online our article: http://www.habitatforhorses.org/horsemeat-found-in-united-states/.

Demand on social media that the news talk about this. Demand that the PAST act be made into law. Stop horse slaughter everywhere but especially from coming back to the US which has been recently making headway again. Our families deserve to know what is in our meat. No more lies. For the love of horses, for our families health – make this an issue the news cannot ignore.

    Saw this yesterday & forwarded it on. This am, the CBS morning show had a report on ground beef – but only tested for bacteria – apparently NOT for other species! Hope this gets to the main media – certainly is in several articles online.

    Posted to Twitter. We knew the USDA had to be up to its usual back slapping and glad handing with the Welfare Ranchers while we are distracted with the Wild Horse and Burro roundups and that stinker of a Bill to prevent drugs in Racehorses. The ONLY way to get the drugs out of all forms or Horse Racing is to sue via RICO.

    This makes me ill, but not surprised.

  • I wondered how long it would be before this happened. I think the public will be up in arms when they find this out. I used to work in a grocery store, any time ground meat has foreign stuff in it, when the public finds out ,store has a re-call and people bring it back and won’t buy ground meat for a long time after that,we definitely lost a lot of money after the pink slime ect. thing.

    We need to send this documentation to all our Legislators. The proof is now here. How can anyone deny the fact that it is happening? Call your Legislators today and supply them with a copy of the proof. What else are they lying about???
