Horse meat scandal the tip of the iceberg - goodness knows what else we’ve been fed
I HAVE only just had my edition of the Grimsby Telegraph delivered and read the letters in Viewpoint, the one titled "What's the fuss?" about the horsemeat issue so incensed me that I felt I had to respond immediately!
The writer (and may I say any other persons like them) have completely and utterly missed the point!
Yes, no one has been taken ill, poisoned or died, but we should be able to put our trust in the people who tell us that what is listed as ingredients on our packaged food is in fact blooming well correct!
Another moral issue with this is that there are those of us who would personally choose NOT to eat horse, and would like to be given the chance to make that decision for ourselves thank you.

So whoever you are, I would look at the bigger picture if I were you.
This is only the tip of the iceberg, goodness knows what else we have been fed, one way or another.

The Telegraph says
There are several issues in this scandal, one being the fact that we are paying potentially far more for a product if it contains "cheaper" meats. Another is the potential health risk, bearing in mind that horse carcasses shipped this year from the UK to France that probably entered the country's meat-producing market were found to contain traces of a painkiller. And, of course, it is an offence to falsely label a product as one when it is, in fact, another.
