A recent Food Standards Agency Ireland have issued a report highlighting the problem in the food industry.
A total of 27 products were analysed, with 23 of them containing pork DNA.
In addition, 31 beef meal products, including cottage pie, beef curry pie and lasagna, were analysed, of which 21 tested positive for pig DNA.
The fact is that these products are adulterated, are in violation of secular law and the authorities have an obligation to investigate and remove these products regardless of whether it is a halal issue or not.
This is a major failure to maintain product integrity, with pork there is the additional concern that products can cause trichinosis.
In modern times, many of the trichinosis cases have come from under cooked beefburger from poorly cleaned out meat grinders.
We demand that FSA informs all communities of the issue and investigate the burger trade thoroughly and safeguards the population against such fraud and health risk by naming the companies involved in this trade in the UK, as a very large amount of beef products are imported from Ireland on a daily basis, also bearing in mind that one of the main culprits is also supplying halal products to multiple businesses.
We urge you to investigate and remove this brand or any other brands that have been identified and advise the Muslim community to remove contaminated products from their freezers and not to be consume them as this would be in breach of their religious dietary needs.

Dutchman led criminal gang, dozens of arrests
Adapted today, 13:29
The fraud began in 2013, when in Ireland horse meat was discovered in hamburgers which should only contain beef. In addition, the horse meat was not suitable for eating. There were also anti-inflammatory drugs [‘bute’] in the meat.
As a result of the scandal, 65 people were arrested in Spain. Police have also done searches in France, Portugal, Italy, Romania, Switzerland and Great Britain. Bank accounts, real estate and expensive cars have been seized.
F. is suspected of leading the gang from the Spanish Alicante region. Among other things, he is accused of fraudulent written statements, animal abuse and obstructing justice.
The Spanish police arrested the gang in 2016 after it was discovered that deficient horse meat was traded. It turned out to be meat of Portuguese and Spanish horses that were actually too old or not suitable for consumption. From Spain, the meat went to Belgium where it was sold with false documents.
The 67-year-old F. has already been convicted in the Netherlands for selling horse meat as expensive halal beef. He made an estimated 2.6 million euros with that.

Faltering May Forced to Give Kids their Dinners Back
Wednesday 5th July 2017
PM ditches yet another disastrous policy
INFANTS in primary schools will continue to get free lunches, the government announced yesterday in its second U-turn in 24 hours.
Schools Minister Nick Gibb revealed that the government would “retain the existing provision” after being challenged by shadow education secretary Angela Rayner over wanting to axe the universal free meals.
The plan was to replace the lunches with free breakfast for all primary school pupils. Ms May faced ridicule after it emerged the money set aside for this amounted to just 7p.
Mr Gibb, in announcing the second climbdown after the plan to hold a free vote over repealing the fox hunting ban was ditched, admitted to MPs that free school lunches help boost academic achievements of children, especially those from impoverished backgrounds.
A third defeat, showing how wobbly the new Conservative-Irish homophobic terrorist coalition government is, was the concession they had to make improving Northern Irish women’s reproductive rights.
And with reduced school funding for employees, up to 17,000 school dinner staff were at risk of losing their jobs, the GMB union said.
“It’s taken far too long for them to admit it, but the government has seen sense in the end — the argument shouldn’t be how we can take food away from hungry children, but how we can make sure no child or young person goes hungry full stop.”
He said: “It is hard to credit that a Conservative government was seriously considering taking the food off young children’s plates.
“Teachers and parents will remain concerned, however, about the huge gap in finances that is resulting in cuts to education up and down the country.
“The Conservatives had pledged ‘additional funding’ for schools during the election. Schools, teachers and parents need urgent assurance from government that new money will be provided to tackle the growing crisis in school funding.
“This is truly urgent; schools need £2bn by September.”
During the urgent Commons question on schools funding, Ms Rayner pressured Mr Gibb to answer whether government promises to guarantee funding for schools would be backed by new money and by not making cuts elsewhere.
She asked Mr Gibb whether the increase in school funding of £150 per pupil in Northern Ireland — through the Tories’ £1bn deal with the DUP — would also apply to children elsewhere in Britain.
Mr Gibb claimed that no school would see less funding per pupil as a result of a new national funding formula, and that the government would set out its plans “shortly.”
On Monday, it was revealed that head teachers will this week send letters to MPs warning that their schools are “running on empty.”
More than 4,000 head teachers across 17 counties are writing to their MPs urging them to use their influence to secure sustainable additional funding for all schools.
It follows a similar letter to more than one million families last month, in which head teachers warned that they were faced with having to make tough decisions over redundancies, scrapping subjects of study, and even closing schools early because of funding shortages.

In this vlog you can see that we vegans only eat salad … no, just kidding! In this vlog I travelled to Utrecht and went to Veggieworld. There is a lot of vegan junk food there and awesome people. Hamburgers, cakes, candy, wraps and a whole lot more.
Recently, the opposition PvdD (Party for the Animals) moved in the council meeting that at all local government events at least 50% of all snacks should be vegan or vegetarian. To the surprise of many people, at the meeting last Thursday executive coalition parties D66 and GroenLinks voted for the PvdD motion, meaning there was a majority in favour of it.
The VVD is now angry, and the coalition may be in trouble.
This video is called Please sir, I want some more. Based on the novel Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. A scene from a workhouse, where children do not get enough food. The present British Conservative government are working hard at bringing back the times of Charles Dickens.

Welcome to Foodbank Britain
Tuesday 25th April 2017
1.2 MILLION parcels handed out in a year
Britain’s biggest foodbank charity the Trussell Trust said yesterday it provided 1,182,954 three-day food supplies to people in crisis in the year to March — 70,000 more compared with the previous 12 months.
Almost 440,000 of the supplies went to children, the charity said.
And three million children are at risk of going hungry during the school holidays when there is also an increased use of foodbanks when they don’t get free school meals, according to a report by a cross-party panel of MPs and peers.
Labour shadow work and pensions secretary Debbie Abrahams called the grim tally “a damning condemnation of the Tories’ economic failure” and said her party would reverse benefit cuts and boost wages.
In areas where the government’s penny-pinching universal credit benefit was introduced, foodbank use shot up by 17 per cent. This was down to the six-week waiting period for the first universal credit payment.
Benefit delays and changes remain the biggest cause of someone being referred to the Trussell Trust’s 420 foodbanks by a front-line worker such as a doctor, social worker or jobcentre adviser.
An engineer who was made redundant after 37 years said that he struggled to find another job and he had to wait six to eight weeks before receiving his first benefit payment while feeling very depressed.
He said: “It was only when I could no longer ask family and friends for money that I turned to Citizens Advice for help — it referred me to the foodbank.
“Without the foodbank, I honestly don’t know where I’d be. I was living on nothing during that period.”
“The rampant use of benefit sanctions has also had a devastating impact,” warned Ms Abrahams.
“Labour will implement a real living wage, reverse damaging cuts to support for working people, scrap the punitive Tory sanction regime and invest in growing our economy so that we all benefit not just the few.”
Trussell Trust chief executive David McAuley said that changes to benefits under the universal credit scheme — which is being rolled out in a number of regions — need to be reworked so that people don’t go hungry.
He said: “We are sharing our early observations with the Department for Work and Pensions to ensure any adverse side-effects universal credit can have on people are addressed before full rollout is completed.”
Meanwhile, the all-party parliamentary group on hunger said the government should use £100,000 raised from the sugary drinks tax to help councils support schemes to feed hungry children when not at school.
Disturbing examples include a youngster who vomited during the holidays because their diet consisted of only crisps, and malnourished children dropping out of the later stages of a football tournament because their “bodies simply gave up on them.”
FOUR in five people referred to foodbanks have had to skip meals for days at a time, a major study revealed yesterday. Research commissioned by the Trussell Trust charity, which runs 400 foodbanks across the country, found that half of people forced to turn to foodbanks did so because their incomes were “unsteady” from week to week. Some were waiting for benefit payments, while others were hit by a sudden “income shock” caused by increases in housing or food costs: here.

After scandals like illegal horse meat sold as beef …
Translated from Dutch Vroege Vogels TV:
Shark meat surreptitiously in fish products
Tuesday, February 14, 2017
A large part of the fish sold on [Caribbean island] Sint Maarten contains surreptitiously added shark meat. This is evident from genetic research on fish from restaurants, supermarkets and shops commissioned by the Nature Foundation Sint Maarten. The shark meat regularly was of threatened shark species. The project Save Our Sharks, which is dedicated to sharks in the Caribbean, thinks that shark meat is also added to seafood in other parts of the world.
Imports from Asia
Products and dishes like fish and chips, saltfish, fish soup and swordfish tested positive for the presence of shark meat. The tested products were imported and came probably from Asia. According to Save Our Sharks shark meat is often traded there as bycatch. In the products species were found such as blue shark, shortfin mako shark, silky shark and bigeye thresher shark. Each year 100 million sharks all over the world are killed in fishing.
Sharks store toxins in their meat and liver. It is known that shark meat, therefore, can contain high levels of toxic methyl mercury. This stuff is especially harmful to pregnant women and children.
Sint Maarten is a tourist resort and restaurants on the island are serving large quantities of fish. Tourists on the island so possibly get a serving of endangered species, which also can be hazardous to health. Save Our Sharks wants to expand the study to other regions in the Caribbean and beyond.

From Waterford Whispers News in Ireland (satire; however, it often turns out that Trump makes satire reality):
Trump Demands Burritos Be Renamed “Freedom Wraps”
January 26, 2017
AS relations between the US and Mexico continue to crumble over the onerous issue of immigration and ‘the wall’, President Donald Trump has demanded that a range of Mexican foodstuffs be renamed to be ‘more patriotic’.
Taking example from the 2003 incident in which France opposed the US on the invasion of Iraq, leading to the White House cafeteria changing the names of french fries to ‘freedom fries’, Trump has decreed that burritos will now be known as ‘freedom wraps’, fajitas will be known as ‘freedom wraps’, quesadillas will be known as ‘freedom wraps’, and tacos will be known as ‘crunchy freedom wraps’.
As thousands of tex-mex restaurants prepared to change their description to just ‘tex’, Trump went on to denounce anyone who still refers to freedom wraps as ‘burritos’ to be ‘among the most unpatriotic, dangerous people in the country’.
“Let’s just not question these things, okay? You can be one of two things; a red-blooded American enjoying a spicy, meat-and-cheese-filled freedom wrap, or a dirty flag-burning communist eating a burrito. Which would you like to be, eh? I thought so”.
Furthermore, Trump went on to declare that popular cartoon rodent Speedy Gonzales would be known as ‘Speedy Jones’ from now on.
