@ mrcharly I was referring to general medication like bute & antibiotics, I wouldn't have thought that the random testing your talking about would show those drugs up as they're not the ones being looked for.

I've just had a look at some paperwork and there is a 6 month withdrawal period for some meds and other meds if used renders (excuse the pun) the horse unfit for human consumption

Sickipedia has come into its own (fnarr!) with this story, which has spawned the best one-liners for a generation.

Last night at tea time, my wife asked what my burger tasted like.  "Champion", I said.

To eat a burger or not to eat a burger, that is equestrian.

Meat is Red Rum.

Unexpected item in bagging area.  That'll be a horse, then.

Not to be outdone by Tesco, a budget supermarket has introduced My Lidl Pony.

While you're all sniggering, I understand that a London man is in hospital with severe food poisoning from a Tesco horse burger.

Thank heaven's he's in a stable condition.

Girl asked me in Tesco if I wanted anything on my burger:

I said £5 Each Way

Horse meat found in Tesco burgers. Camel toe found in Primark leggings.

If you liked their hamburgers, you should try the meatballs. They're the Dog's Bollocks.

Reminds me of Ben Elton in standup mode, telling the story of Colonel Sanders using every bit of chicken in the KFC menu.

"But no-one will want to eat them, sir"

Makes sense I guess, compared to actual horse meat which could be sold as such in other countries. But then the beef in the burgers is probably from similar processes.

It's been suggested that some Tesco burgers were 30% horse.  That's more than a trace of DNA.

Any city centre street, no beef! Probably not UCI approved.

So it seems the horse meat was imported to Ireland from Poland, where the horses were slaughtered in an abattoir owned by the parent company of the Irish meat processors. Horse meat wouldn't provoke the automatic "errgh" in Poland it does here, but isn't as popular as in, say, France. More to the point, if this implies the horses had been kept in Poland, they were probably agricultural horses - still a lot of horse-carts and even horse ploughing out there - rather than racing horses, as that's a pretty minor sport there, and so won't have been fed any of these dangerous race horse drugs. Then again, with the supply chain already spanning three countries, these horses could have been taken to the Polish slaughterhouse from Germany or elsewhere.
