The Tesco Horse Burger situation

A quick cartoon sketch related to the Tesco horse, meat in their burgers story, my apologies but I couldn’t resist, as a shopkeeper seeing another retail business in the horseradish, particularly a very big one is something I find funny.

Acer et ad plamae per se cursurus honores, Si tamen horteris fortius ibit equus.

Hopefully none of the leather bindings in my bookshop are horse, but how would one know? 

Ah and here is a link to the Tesco Equestrian Range 


  1. "I've just checked the Tesco burgers in my freezer...AND THEY'RE OFF"

  2. Ironically horse meat is probably far safer than beef that's pumped full of antibiotics and growth hormones, not to mention the possibility of BSE...

  3. I would have never thought that the horse population was strong enough to supply the processed burger market, especially when the customers are Tesco and Iceland. Does make me wonder where the origin of the horse meat comes from ?

    1. Doesn’t make sense to me either Tony, in the countries where horse meat is eaten I think it is more expensive than beef.

  4. I was more shocked to discover that Tesco Value burgers had any beef in them.

  5. Despite the recent news, Tesco says that their beef burger sales remain

    Went to the fridge to check my burgers, aaaaannndddd they're off!!

    Had a Tesco beef burger for lunch.
    It gave me the trots.

    New Tesco burgers: Low in fat, high in Shergar.

    Horse meat found in Tesco burgers!
    What are the odds on that?

  6. I heard that Tesco are marketing a new range of meatballs. They're the dog's b*ll*cks.

  7. What do you put on your Tesco Burger? A fiver each way. Thank you, I'm here all week.
