    Cut the jobs of the federal meat inspectors! The bloody Free Market will decide what’s edible and what’s not! To hell with government!

    Uh, the meat is not disease laden because it is from horses.
    I for one prefer inspected meat, regardless of the animal’s cuteness level.

    Hmm… horse meat or pink slime? You decide!

    Ha-ha! No, you don’t. The pathetic inspection process is going to get worse.

    The only way we’ll know what we’re eating is if we go out & kill it ourselves. Maybe this is part of the Republican plot to turn us all into gun owners.

    USDA inspections are just security theater to make you think that buying meat raised in filthy, disease ridden CAFOs from ginormous processing conglomerates is safe. You’re much better off buying from local pasture farmers, if the USDA hasn’t shut them down for being outside the industrial food system. Horsemeat is probably cleaner than most of what the USDA certifies.

    The problem isn’t that it is horse meat, the problem is too many companies can’t trace the origin of the meat they use. If mad cow disease were traced to a single ranch in Argentina, there would be no way of telling where the infected meat may have gotten to in the past year. If each restaurant and grocery store could trace the provenance of their food, it could be isolated quickly. Right now, a mad cow scare could affect just about every restaurant chain in the US and Europe.

    “Really, Ms I’m the Most A$$holish person on these boards? You’re happy to let things go THAT far?”

    You do realize that Ima’s comments get worse and worse in a pathetic bid to illicit comments like yours, right? Ima is a lot like Ann Coulter in that respect. Just roll your eyes, mutter something under your breath about him/her being a loser, and move on.

    The Asians eat boiled chicken feet, give me a horse steak any day compared to boiled chicken feet. I have actually tried them both and the horse was very much like venison and the chicken feet can not be described as food.

    The commentators concerned about meat quality and inspection are most on target here. It doesn’t matter from which animal ‘meat’ comes, practically speaking. It does matter the degree to which manufacturers place profit over humane practices, cleanliness, and public health. The USDA is chronically understaffed where inspectors are concerned and oversight of the agency invites the concern expressed by previous comments.
    Horses are, to me, like dogs. My childhood memories are full of horses who would meet me at the edge of the property line in their fence when I came home from school. I rode to friends’ homes on horseback while my dog trotted alongside on many days. Their intelligence and ability to work with humans have made the idea of eating them, or dogs, almost akin to cannibalism.
    That is sentiment and many people raise horses for their own food and if left to run freely, horses would be like deer have become in some areas, and facing starvation. I won’t eat horse meat or visit a restaurant where it is served, but neither can I argue against it without arguing against eating beef, venison, goat, pigs, etc.

    I’m not so concerned about rat dung in Taco Bell products, but I would be concerned if it were in food.

    Horse meat, no. TVP yes. Textured vegetable protein.
