Fast food chain Burger King admitted they have been using horse meat for their burgers
They have been accused of the same from many years, but Burger King has denied these accusations as rumors before.
But last Thursday, they came out with an announcement admitting that the tests were wrong, apologizing to their customers.
The company producing meat for BK was called Silvercrest. They also delivered meat for Asda, Co-op and Tesco. The ingredients in the meat they were supplying have been forbidden since last year.
As announced by Burger King on this subject:
“We discovered that Silvercrest is using small percent of beef originating from non-approved Polish suppliers, who promised to supply them with 100% British and Irish beef cutlets.
They did not fulfill their promise.
All of this is completely against our rules and regulations, so we decided to end up the partnership with this supplier.
As we`ve confirmed, this Polish supplier is the source of the contaminated meat that came from Silvercrest. “
