A February 13th meeting of the European Union addressed concerns related to the recent scandal in which horsemeat was sold as beef. As more countries are testing beef samples for traces of horsemeat, they find that the problem has been spreading.
Nations most affected by the horsemeat scandal called for more intensive testing in March. Their proposal includes testing 6,500 beef samples for traces of horsemeat and Bute, a harmful equine medicine.
Some European nations aren't sensitive about eating horsemeat, but mislabeled meat is unacceptable nonetheless. Please sign the petition to support tighter regulations and prevent similar scandals from happening in the future.
