Topic - Horsemeat

mypyrex - on 12 Feb 2013
As I understand it, the problem has arisen as a result of a) incorrect labelling, ie labelling something as beef when, in fact it was horse; and b)the risk that the horsemeat might have been contaminated.

Those points aside, why does there seem to be an aversion in the UK to the consumption of horse meat? There are apparently quite a few other countries where it is quite regularly consumed. If it's properly reared and slaughtered what's the difference between heating horse or beef? I sometimes wonder if it's similar to people being squeamish about rabbit because they had a nice fluffy bunny as a childhood pet.
