Horsemeat scandal; give ‘tainted’ food to the poor

EU horse meat flagFood containing horsemeat but labelled as something else are being taken off the shelves in numerous European countries, including the UK.

The latest find saw six tonnes of minced beef and 2,400 packs of lasagne Bolognese containing horsemeat in Italy.

A German minister of the CDU party said “We can’t just throw away good food”

And that’s exactly what it is, good food, there are no health issues over the food just that it has been mislabelled.

He went on to say that there are 800 million people in the world who were hungry.

“Even in Germany, unfortunately there are people for whom it is financially tight, even for food. I think that we can’t just throw away good food here in Germany”

Will capitalism continue mass wastage while people go hungry?
