      The European Commission Food and Veterinary Office (FVO) found serious violations during inspections conducted in November and December 2010 of EU regulated plants in Mexico slaughtering horses for human consumption.[8] Most American horses destined for slaughter end up at EU regulated plants in Mexico and Canada. The meat of some horses killed in Mexico are mixed with beef and sold back to unsuspecting United States consumers. Horses, unlike traditional food animals in the United States, are not raised or medicated during their lifetime with the intent of one day becoming human food. Because American horses are not "intended" for the human food chain, throughout their lives they will often have received medications that are banned by the FDA for use at any time during the life of food animals.[

        This, unfortunately, is not new. Several articles about 4/5 years ago alleged that street vendors, food trucks and even some caterers, particularly in SoCal, mixed horse meat in with their tacos, hamburgers. And some of the vendors admitted to it .. saying the horse meat was cheaper than beef.

        Anywhere close to the border between Mexico and the US, buyer beware ...
