    I haven't been to a burger joint in 10 years. Never eat food prepared by teenage boys.

    I'm not in the U.K. but I got a gift cerificate for BK this Christmas, so I used it. MISTAKE!!! It tasted funny, dry, old, cold. It made me sick. I went on their website and blasted them. Then they invited me to a free meal. Yeah, I'll jump right on that deal. Get sick again for free. Thanks a lot. How about giving me a fucking refund instead?????

    If you read the article it says trace amounts.
    Pollocks can't tell the difference between horses and cows.

    4 more years for Obama! Horse meat can now be slaughtered for human consumption in the U.S.!
    Horses could soon be slaughtered for meat in US - Yahoo! News Singapore

    Horses could soon be butchered in the U.S. for human consumption after Congress quietly lifted a 5-year-old ban on funding horse meat inspections, and activists say slaughterhouses could be up and running in as little as a month.
    ... ​
    The USDA issued a statement Tuesday saying there are no slaughterhouses in the U.S. that butcher horses for human consumption now, but if one were to open, it would conduct inspections to make sure federal laws were being followed. USDA spokesman Neil Gaffney declined to answer questions beyond what was in the statement.
    ...​
    But pro-slaughter activists say the ban had unintended consequences, including an increase in neglect and the abandonment of horses, and that they are scrambling to get a plant going — possibly in Wyoming, North Dakota, Nebraska or Missouri. They estimate a slaughterhouse could open in 30 to 90 days with state approval and eventually as many as 200,000 horses a year could be slaughtered for human consumption. Most of the meat would be shipped to countries in Europe and Asia, including France and Japan.

    Didn't know it was illegal. I haven't had horse meat since I was a kid, but I remember it being similar to venison. A lot leaner than beef.

    I used to LOVE their whoppers! The last 2 times i'd gotten one though (i haven't been there in about a year now!) i'd gotten really sick....i'm sure it was food poisoning! After the first time, it had been quite a while and i decided i wanted one and that maybe the when i got sick it was actually from something else. NOPE! Did it again! No more BK for me!!
