1,000 racehorses a year in UK abattoirs. Shocking failures in checks. How do we know thoroughbreds aren't in our food?

The monitoring and tracking of horse numbers in Britain and Ireland is so lax that tens of thousands of animals may have been exported illegally and entered the food chain, experts have warned.

It was bad enough when horse meat allegedly from Poland via Ireland, and then Romania via France, was found contaminating British beef products. Cue much concern over elaborate supply chains, dubious foreign abattoirs and the ineptitude of the Food Standards Agency  in policing the quality – or even variety – of the processed meat entering the UK. How much worse, however, now that it appears that horse meat is slipping illicitly into the food chain in Britain, too.
