Food Fraud Hits New Low: Dog Meat In British Curry

Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

The food fraud story has now progressed from somewhat humorous with the undersized Subway footlong subs, to the highly disturbing with the revelations of horse meat and fake tuna, to the really creepy with the now potential emergence of dog meat in UK lamb curry.  No you can’t print lamb folks, which is exactly why many humans are now eating worse than their pets in the Western world.

A mystery meat, which has defied the best efforts of scientists to identify it, has been found in a lamb curry as part of an investigation into food fraud.


The discovery raises new questions about just what is going into the nation’s takeaways and processed foods.


The meat in a Beef in Black Bean Sauce dish turned out to contain high levels of chicken material including blood, while a burger contained no beef at all, other than blood and heart.


However, most alarming of all was a curry. A spokesman for the programme said: ‘Just when we thought things couldn’t get any worse, the results came in for an Indian Lamb Curry.


‘It did contain meat, but that meat was not lamb, not pork, nor was it chicken or beef. Not horse, and not goat either.


All of the many tests to date by the lab used by the programme have failed to identify exactly which animal was the source of the meat.


The revelation raises many grim possibilities. There is evidence from Spain, for example, of meat from dog carcasses being processed for use in pet food.


At the same time, a meat cutting plant in Wales has been accused of supplying horsemeat from an abattoir in Yorkshire to companies making kebabs and burgers for hundreds of independent take-aways.

Don’t worry mate, your savior George Osborne will simply create a housing bubble and you’ll be so distracted that dirt will soon taste good.  Cheers!

This is just another cheap attention grabbing 'Man bites dog' story...

Why stop at dog? I understand there are too many humans. Think of the positive eco-ramifications. Hell, they're already fattened up. Could you just see the look on Malthus' face if he found out the human race survived because the population was the food? Darwin would certainly say "only winners get dinner". Anyway I think it's past time to rehabilitate Jeff Dahmer. And as Jeff said just before a black man beat him to death in prison, "I used to eat guys like you for breakfast!!"

Ah, good Ol' British Curried Dog! All we need now is a plate of "chips" to dip in the sauce and we're marvelous.

Up next Rat Vindaloo and Sweet 'n Sour Soylent Green.

I love the look on the dog in the ad being "served" by my browser for this story.  Do you think he can read?

Fido. It's what's for dinner.

I thought curry was supposed to be dog meat.

Ofcourse the one meat they've not tried yet has not been tested, human.

AAMOF, it wasn't a woman to ask that question: it was King Ludwig the Tree of Discworld's Ankh-Morpork city (known to issue royal proclamations on the need to develop a new type of frog and similar important matters) who asked it: "Quanti Canicula Ille In Fenestra". After the question became the city motto ... :-D

Rat is so last year:



Cane rats and "shocking" quantities of illegal and "potentially unsafe" meat have been sold to the public in east London, a BBC London undercover investigation has found.

There used to be a guy that sold sausages outside the tube station near Lester Square.  Damn they smelled good.  Never could bring myself to try one though since coming out of the tubes, all you can see down there on the tracks is rats jumping and running around... ha ha.  We used to call them mousages.  Came real close to getting one though.  At some point if it tastes good and doesn't kill me, I sort of don't care what it is!

Watch an episode of Survivor man. The kids and I get a good laugh when Les Stroud is so hungry, his reaction to eating Grub worm is like he just bit into a piece of medium-rare fillet at Gibsons.

It's not "British" curried dog; anybody who would eat anything from a fucking Paki take out is mental in the first place.

Minute steak and minute veggies:  When stir-frying veggies from our garden I have been adding a little vinegar and everyone really likes the result. Suprisingly, my homemade vinegar makes the fresh veggies taste even sweeter.

balsamic ~ I hope...


Also works, mixed with a bit of soy, as a meat tenderizer [quick marinade] for the tougher cuts... As well as blending with the evoo/basamic on the stir fry...

Still ~ I give it a 9.8... [I deduct -.02 to Mrs h_h for having used a square vegetable chopper on the carrots instead of proudly displaying her knifesmanship... Those carrot cuts are too uniform to be 'other']... She still gets high marks, as always, though...

Not balsamic, our vinegar is made from the bottoms of bottles of wine, not from grape juice.

francis_sawyer's picture

which is the same with 'real' balsamic [from Modena]...

Mrs h_h for having used a square vegetable chopper on the carrots instead of proudly displaying her knifesmanship

I harvested, peeled, and chopped those carrots with a knife.

Here is the thread with the vinegar procedure.

Started up some swiss chard based on a post a few months ago.  Bought some extra seeds for a neighbor who has been trading plants (tomato, basil, peppers, etc.) for stuff I grow in the backyard.

The other day, the same neighbor was over in our backyard area for our dogs to all play.  Along with them came a bunch of other people from the area who all have huskies as well (I also have a German Shepherd that the husky pack has sort of conditionally accepted).  Looking across the pond at the group of people hanging out, dogs and kids running around, and it just struck me how communities that have been so fragmented come back together.  A nice little moment of hope.

Good to hear it!  That is swiss chard in the stir fry with the carrots and peas.  It also goes well in quiche.

""smokies", a delicacy made by charring sheep or goat with a blow torch"

That doesn't sound bad.

I started a back yard vegetable garden last spring. Everything was going great until I looked out my window and saw my neighbor's dog pissing on everything. I couldn't eat any of it after that. Gave all away to my neighbor.

2 things [no arguments here ~ just shootin' the shit]


1. Great knifesmanship then... The only time I use one of those vegetable choppers, sometimes, is if I'm trying to get uniformity in size to cut my russets to become french fries [for obvious cooking purposes]... Actually ~ I was just 'prodding' you on that, because with me, even with the french fry cuts, the potatoes were so hard to push through those chopping gadgets I ended up just chopping them myself & have gotten pretty good at getting them fairly uniform... So ~ I believe you...

2. The "aceto" is a semantic issue... On the surface, one might think that the very old 'Aceto Balsamico di Modena' recipe comes from white grapes [which is more or less true]... But it is the aging process & distillation which makes it what it is... [which is not too dissimilar you YOUR process in terms of the ACTIVE components]... Perhaps in 1,000 years you'll have a gourmet condiment named in your honor :-)... [that was a h/t ~ by the way]...



Huskies are notorious 'diggers' [so be careful having them around gardens]... But anyway, 'Swiss Chard' is about the easiest thing to grow in the world, so if IT dies, you might as well start chopping your arm off & eating the flesh if you get hungry...

A good set of knives is a must.  Henkels is a good brand.  And decent pots and pans like All Clad.  Kind of hard to buy expensive stuff like this at first, but it really does last a lifetime (as long as the wife doesn't start prying crap with good knives... dear god.).

edit:  Yeah, our husky has to be supervised when he is on the loose!  lol.  I have an area in the backyard that is fenced and had to bury the wires a foot down and line the edge with big gravel.  Little bugger loves to dig.

francis_sawyer's picture

There are a select few brands of good knives... But in my experience...  I'll 100% endorse HENKELS as my all-time favorite [in numerous categories of judging a good knife]... HUSKIES ~ effin diggin fools...
