Burger King has finally admitted that they have been using horse meat in order to make their burgers and whoppers.These are allegations that Burger King has denied in the past.
On Thursday, the fast food giant gave up and it has admitted that their previous quality control tests were false and gave a candid apology to its costumers.
They said in a statement that the firm called Silvercrest was producing the horse meat for Burger King.
The company was also providing meat delivery services for most of the UK’s Supermarket giants, namely Tesco, Asda and the Co-op. The substances that this company was supplying were banned already for a year.
Burger King stated about the case:
“We have determined that Silvercrest has been using a tiny percentage of beef imported from a supplier has not been approved from Poland, who promised to deliver 100 per cent British and irish beef patties.
“They have failed to do so.”
“This clearly goes against our rules and we have ended our partnership with them.”
“We have proven that this non-approved supplier from Poland is the source of the contamination going on at Silvercrest supplier.”
