      Horsemeat scandal: Withdrawn products and test results

      The discovery of horsemeat in beef products has led to a range of processed foods being withdrawn from sale across Europe.
      Retailers and suppliers have been conducting further tests to try to determine to what extent, if any, horsemeat is contained in their products labelled as beef.
      The Food Standards Agency (FSA) says 2,501 tests have been carried out so far, with 29 tests showing
      the presence of horsemeat.

      So... who here has changed their eating habits?
      Or is a little variety in your diet not much of a worry for you?

      I will admit to being a little cautious now at what I buy and what I eat. I have always been someone who would never eat anything like horse, just don't see that horse should be for the dinner table.

      Though I wouldn't deliberately buy a product if I knew there was horsemeat in it, it doesn't worry me that I probably have unknowingly eaten it.
