Consumers Fear Injury over Tainted Food Products

Over the past month, there have been some disturbing claims of horsemeat used in European meat supplies that brands such as Burger King, Nestle, Tesco and Ikea have allegedly used for their meat products.  This begs the question, are we at danger for injury of tainted meat products from meat suppliers? In a recent statement, Ikea assured consumers that in their US stores, they only obtained meat from US suppliers.  But our European counterparts are apparently not so lucky, according to the European Union's evidence. 

This year, food safety has certainly come into focus.  As consumers, we have experienced a variety of health scares from various food safety concerns.  Whether it was tainted agricultural products or tainted meat products, consumers have faced injury due to a variety of infectious diseases.
