patp It is little known that supermarkets often have halal meat on their shelves without disclosing it clearly on the label. It is just available cheap on the open market so we get it foisted on us. I buy my meat from a local "ethical" butcher who visits the farms he buys from.

The 'Doping' was in racehorses.

Some terrible things have been/are done done to animals. A butcher relative of mine relates how (not his father but competitors) would in the 60s inject bullocks with orange juice an hour or two before slaughter. Dispersed through the body the acetic acid would tenderise the toughest meat as it hung. Only problem was that the poor beast died in absolute agony. I wouldn't say no body cares, more that those who do it don't and the majority have no idea what goes on.

Glandwr 4 years ago I unknowingly had a horse meat steak in Catania Sicily. Only found out later. It was rather good, suspiciously large hanging off the plate but not the tenderest steak I've had. Nice source though.
