Bahrain horse meat, pork scandal

This video from Britain says about itself:

Feb 2, 2013

The government has admitted it’s “completely unacceptable” that traces of pork was found in Halal meat supplied to prisons in England and Wales.

Killing pro-democracy demonstrators, jailing bloggers for blogging, torturing doctors for healing wounded people, and torturing poetesses for reading poems are not the only scandals in the Bahraini absolute monarchy.

Criminals selling horse meat as “beef” happens in other countries too. Criminals selling pork as halal (permissible for Muslims) meat happens elsewhere as well. So does selling pork as ‘moose’ meat.

From IANS news agency:

Pork, horse meat found in canned products in Bahrain

IANS, Manama, Updated: August 01, 2013 13:00 IST

Bahrain’s health ministry has removed from market scores of canned meat products after a probe revealed they were “contaminated” with horse meat and pork.

The ministry earlier launched an investigation to collect samples of meat from the local markets, which were tested at its laboratories, Xinhua reported.

After testing 172 products, including minced meat, burgers and frozen meat, the ministry said it found horse meat and pork mixed with beef in several canned products.

“A total of 22 contaminated imported and processed meat products were found in the market. 16 products were found to have horse meat and six with pork,” the ministry said in a statement.

The ministry said it will intensify tests of imported meat products to ensure they are “halal” (permissible to be eaten by Muslims).
