Cheval as I under is the term used by gourment chefs regarding horse
meat.

I read its on the menu in Canada and Mexico. I have to ask my good buddy Axeman in Canada how does it taste, etc. Or anyone else who
have tasted it.

Never have, never will, at least not knowingly. I love horses -- as fellow beings, not food products. :D

No horse in IKEA meatballs in the US, store says






Czech Republic officials say traces of horse meat were discovered in frozen packages of meatballs sent to their country for sale at furniture giant Ikea. NBCNews.com's Dara Brown reports.

Shoppers who relish the popular meatballs sold in IKEA furniture stores in the United States don’t have to worry that they’re getting a serving of horse meat in their snacks, store officials said Monday.

The pork and beef used in Ikea meatballs in the U.S. comes from a domestic supplier and is not related to a recall of frozen meatballs in the Czech Republic, said Mona Liss, a store spokeswoman.

“We can confirm that the contents of the meatballs follow the IKEA recipe and contain only beef and pork from animals raised in the U.S. and Canada,” Liss said in a statement to NBC News. “All beef and pork from the U.S. and Canada must comply with USDA guidelines.”

IKEA pulled 1,675 pounds of one-kilogram packs of frozen meatballs made in Sweden and shipped to the Czech Republic for sale in IKEA stores after the Czech State Veterinary Administration detected traces of horse meat in the products, the Associated Press reported.

IKEA’s furniture stores worldwide feature restaurants and also sell food typical of the store’s home country, including the wildly popular Kottbullar meatballs.

IKEA is the latest global firm to grapple with a horse meat scandal that has been spreading through Europe for the past month. Food giants Nestle and Birds Eye recalled prepared meat products last week after tests detected horse meat in ravioli, lasagna and chili con carne. Both of those firms said that U.S. operations are separate and that no meat implicated in the European scandal has been used in food in America.

U.S. Department of Agriculture officials also told NBC News that it’s highly unlikely that beef or pork adulterated with horse meat will make it into the nation’s food supply. Strict labeling and inspection requirements are aimed at making sure all meats are what they say they are.

However, USDA officials also acknowledge that testing for specific species in shipments of meat is conducted only when there’s reason to suspect a problem.

In 1981, shipments of boneless beef from Australia were found to be adulterated with both horse meat and kangaroo. That finding forced the detention and inspection of more than 66 million pounds of meat – and led to stricter inspection efforts, USDA officials said.

European officials are conducting random DNA tests after traces of horse meat began turning up in frozen beef patties and prepared foods in the past month.

More than a dozen nations have now detected horse meat in various products

The budgets for all the US agencies, including the USDA and the FDA have already been cut to the bone, and many of the food inspectors have already been laid off. If the next round of cuts goes through in a few days, the US food supply will probably become as risky to consume as it is in lots of other countries.

If the Republican nutcases in Congress have their way, there won't be an FDA, a USDA, an EPA, or any of the other agencies that were established to protect people from unscrupulous food distributors and manufacturers and from companies in other industries that would just love to improve their bottom lines by cutting costs (i.e., ceasing to comply with food-safety, anti-polution, and other laws that exist to protect consumers) and raking in the increased profits. Then, we won't have to worry as much about the food killing us, since the air and water will become deadly (or maybe I should say deadlier) too. I'm glad my family's water comes from our own well, but even that could be at risk if industry is not restrained from dumping their toxic wastes all over the place. That's what you get when you have unrestrained and unregulated capitalism. The so-called "public sector" (mostly foreign and international corporations) is based on greed and cannot be trusted to operate both to make a reasonable profit and in the public's interest.
