European Horse Meat Scandal Not Likely to Happen in U.S.
Feb 15, 2013
Europeans were horrified to learn that their frozen processed beef products including lasagna and hamburger tested positive for horse meat, but experts said it was unlikely that horse meat could ever make it onto plates on this side of the Atlantic. The United States no longer slaughters horses or imports horse meat from other countries, a U.S. Department of Agriculture spokesman told ABCNews.com…"It’s difficult to say that it could never happen here, but it’s a lot less likely," said William Hallman, the director of the Food Policy Institute at Rutgers University. "The bottom line is that no horse meat is legally being slaughtered for commerce right now in the United States."
