What do the villagers think about the news that Findus Lasagne has ingredients gathered across Europe, killed in another, part-processed in another and sold in another ? Isn't that iust too many food miles all in the name of profit ? Then consider the product is only sold for £1.50. Obviously, 1000's are sold, but they need to be to pay for all that Diesel !!

Wages taxes duties benefits and entitlements are too high in this country for us to make Findus Lasagne a local cottage industry. Our govt is broke so canot subsidise anything, cannot even pay for national infrastructure.

Don't know what the fuss is about. Its not as if the 'real' beef is actually prime cut is it? I think I'd rather have horse meat!

I feel sorry for anyone who thought a Findus frozen lasagne was made from quality ingredients in the first place. The total meat content is probably just above that required for it to legally be sold as a meet product and the definition of what goes into it stretches what normal people might think of as "Beef". Certainly it's right they should be checked for horse medicine now but if you want decent quality food, you've no business shopping in the frozen ready meal section.

Lasagne is an angram of "nag sale". Possibly not a coincidence!

Yes, i hear too many people welcoming the possibility that their food contains delicious healthy low fat horsemeat rather than suspicious beef. Well get real, the horsemeat is gonna be lips and arseholes at best!

They are now also taking the veggie lasagne off the shelves as it has been found to contain traces of uniquorn.

What's amusing is that the media are saying the "products are contaminated with horse meat"
They are contaminated but the 'meat' is everything apart from the bones, connective tissue, offal in fact - ALL soft tissue.
I tried to avoid saying it but - horses arse!

I have just got back from a holiday so heard all this horse scandal nonsense from afar. Horse-meat has been eaten for many centuries and still is in many countries. Many of our World War 2 POW's suffered terribly from hunger in the early years of the war as the Germans could not cater for the amount of prisoners they took, they relied heavily on horse-meat, and our servicemen were glad to have it rather than starve. In short the consumption of horse-meat will not kill you.
Surely the issue is the labeling of meat products, not the product in itself.

Is this about health or being lied to? Its perfectly safe to eat monkeys or babies, but that doesn't mean its ok to put them in a burger and label it 100% beef. It surprises me that so many people appear to think that being lied to for the sake of fat-cat profits is not really a problem so long as one's health isn't compromised.
The UK's collective Stockholm Syndrome seems to be getting worse.

Most people can't tell the difference between horse meat and beef, especially in a. Findus Lasagne, the French and a lot of other Europeans eat horse meat and don't have a problem.
The problem for me is that this whole thing exposes that nobody really checks what we are eating is what we are being told it is on the label. Is that Norwegian string really from Norway for instance or is it from a garden shed in Ringmer, the consequences for our retail industry as a whole could be devastating if we found out the truth.
Anybody else watching Utopia?

I wonder how many people would buy horse meat burgers and Lasagne if it was labelled horse meat on the package. I would especially if it was cheaper.
