The problem is that a lot of the horsemeat used in the EU comes from American racehorses (after they've been shipped to slaughterhouses in Canada via "kill dealers"). Racehorses in the US are frequently given Phenylbutazone as an anti-inflammatory. Phenylbutazone or "bute" is considered carcinogenic to humans. Oh those pesky scientists, if only they stopped testing things and let us eat our food in peace.
