Gah, controversial topic! Let’s add some carefully-worded notes:
1. Being lied to (and thus being made to unknowingly eat this meat) is of course also a big issue.
2. I fully understand that people don’t want to treat horses as cattle, the point of this comic is that there seems to be such a higher “OMG WHAT” reaction in the UK than in the Netherlands when I read the news articles.
3. Frikandel (Wiki) doesn’t necessarily contain horsemeat, but there was a big public awareness thing a long time ago when it was revealed that some brands contain up to 30% horsemeat.
