Dog, Rat Meat May Have Entered Human Food Chain

Now may be perfect time to consider vegetarianism. A member of the European Parliament has warned that meat from rats and abandoned dogs may have entered the human food chain.
Alyn Smith says “forced cannibalism” is feared to be taking place with dead animals being turned into food for livestock and pets. He said Spanish cops are probing pet sanctuaries in the country after finding warehouses stacked with 15 tons of dog carcasses. And the MEP for Scotland insists there will be “further revelations." He said yesterday: “Colleagues from France and Belgium tell me they expect results of tests any minute which will confirm dog and rat in the human food chain. I’m concerned given the EU-wide pet food market this contamination could be considerably more widespread.” Mr Smith — in Edinburgh to promote Scottish beef — has lodged a demand for European-wide testing as the meat labeling scandal deepens.
