Britain’s biggest catering company, Sodexo has revealed that it has found horse meat in some of its products instead of the expected ground beef. The royals may have been fed the mis-marked meat as long ago as last summer and it is creating quite an appalling situation.
According to the March 8th print edition of GLOBE, Kate Middleton is afraid to touch any of the meat being served and is pretty much sticking to a veggie diet now.
The danger isn’t the horse meat itself, but the fact that several of the horse carcasses in question had been treated with an anti-inflammatory drug referred to as “Bute”. The drug is a potential carcinogen and can cause life-threatening internal bleeding or spontaneous abortion in a pregnant woman!
After having a rough few months carrying her first child it’s no wonder Kate is terrified of something else going wrong. This news also makes me wonder if Queen Elizabeth was really hospitalized last week with “the trots” or if maybe it was something connected to this meat that they’ve all likely been fed. Supposedly Kate is trying to talk Prince William into giving up meat as well until the authorities can assure them that the meat supply is truly safe for everyone.
Do you think this is yet another British scandal that will prove to be a lot bigger than people initially think? There are a multitude of pregnant women in Europe that could have easily come into contact with some of the tainted meat. Will this be just the start of a bigger problem?

And still they go on slaughtering horses for their meat. It is my understanding that a law is going to be passed in the USA again for slaughtering horses for meat. However, the meat will not be served here. Yeah, right. They all make me sick. And the politicians that have and will vote yes to this, we need to remember and vote their butts out of office. As a matter of fact, I would say 99 % need to be removed from office anyway. I owned horses and riding was the best time of my teen and early adult years. Shame on these people that think these animals have no feelings or brain.
Just shows the callousness, irresponsibility and weakness of character of US politicians. They sell themselves not just to the highest bidder, but anyone willing to stuff their pockets with cash, no matter what the reason.
My heart goes out to Kate and the people of the world who have been affected by this scandal.
