Thu 24th Jan 2013 - Breaking News - Burger King in u-turn on horseburgers
Burger King in u-turn on horseburgers: Burger King is to throw out millions of beef-burgers supplied by the horsemeat scandal firm — a few days after insisting it was unaffected, The Sun has reported. The Sun said: “Managers have been told to box up Whoppers, Angus burgers and patties in a safe area and mark them with an X to ensure they are not sold to customers. An internal memo also insists they “clean and sanitise” pans and sinks and throw away dishcloths used in the process.” The burger scandal broke on Tuesday last week after horse DNA was found at ABP Foods’ Silvercrest meat processing factory in Ireland. Just last Thursday Burger King said: “We confirm Burger King will not be withdrawing product. This is because Burger King only sources 100% UK and Irish beef and ensures the integrity of our production line.” The Sun added: “Three days later a memo from vice president Tracy Gehlan ordered 485 restaurant managers to remove all Silvercrest burgers — but not until replacements from a different supplier had arrived. At that stage “all unopened boxes of Silvercrest Foods product must be marked with a large ‘X’ and ‘Do Not Use’ to indicate that it is prohibited from being opened or sold”. The memo said worried customers were to be told Burger King was taking all the “necessary precautions” to ensure quality.” Burger King’s PR agency Cohn and Wolfe told The Sun yesterday: “The previous statement sent on Thursday was accurate at the time of issue. But over the weekend Burger King decided as a precautionary measure to replace all ABP products in the UK and Ireland with those from an alternative supplier while it completes a thorough independent investigation.”
