Its not a "conspiracy", its a mistake. Horsemeat is, at least, in the UK and ireland, 3x more expensive than beef because theres such a small market
for it. They aren't going to put horsemeat in burgers, brand it as beef, just to "get one over" you, because they'd be taking a huge loss. It is
actually cheaper to sell actual beef as beef, than to sell horsemeat as beef.
Depends on where the horsemeat has been sourced. Wild horses round up, sold on the cheap for quick sale and underhand profit. Old, horse, inured ones,
ex race etc. All sold cheap and possibly loaded with drugs.
Nothing wrong with proper farmed horsemeat though, more protein, less fat, less sodium. I'd eat the stuff all day long if it was easy to get hold of
in the UK.
