And the next foodstuffs found to contain horsemeat will be...

Pizzas that have those tiny mince-like bits of meat on top, shepherd's pie, chilli con carne, tinned mince and pasties.


Shergar Puffs.


Anything with brown meat in it. Pies, pasties, soups, sausages and meatballs. Fresh, frozen, tinned, chilled or dried.




Veggie mince. Remember the Linda McCartney meat scandal?

McCoy's steak flavour crisps... I'm getting concerned.


Own-brand whisky, aka horse piss.


I blame it partly on the glue industry for coming up with synthetic glues. Our woodwork teacher only used the proper stuff.
