Horsemeat Food Scandal Has History
PHILADELPHIA, PA – Recently, headlines have been focused on stories of horsemeat being found in supermarket meat products world-wide. Numerous reports have been filed including a recall on Findus beef lasagna products, which are distributed to the main UK supermarkets. With all of this commotion, one may question the root of this epidemic and seek knowledge in the use of horsemeat as human food. History of this rising issue appears in Ecology of Food and Nutrition (Volume 5, Issue 1, published by Taylor & Francis). In this article, titled Horsemeat as Human Food in France, Daniel Gade explores the acceptance of horsemeat as an appealing food for humans in France. Due to a food shortage crisis, resistance to hippophagy evolved making France the horseflesh center of the Western world by 1910.
