Burger King horse meat contamination allegations are putting fast food lovers on edge throughout the U.K. and Ireland. Burger King has admitted that some of its burgers were indeed contaminated with horsemeat.
The problems started with a Polish distributor that sent meat to Silvercrest, a food processing plant which supplied Burger King and other companies with their meat. The distributor was swapping out beef with other meats as a filler to create cheaper burgers.
According to Burger KIng, their independent DNA test results came back negative for any equine DNA, but samples taken from Silvercrest did show small traces of equine DNA. The fast food chain also stated they have dropped their relationship with Silvercrest.
So do you believe Burger King? Let us know in the comments.
