    Did anyone watch this last night?
    I only caught the second half but was amazed

    I'm never eating a bloomin steak in Wetherspoons again thats for sure!!!
    Some of the steaks they tested had 70% Zebu DNA in them, apparently they cross breed them with cows or something, surely we as consumers should know what we are eating!!
    For those who don't know this is a Zebu

    Freaky looking thing isn't it?

    This programme also said that many of the E numbers that are found in everyday food and drinks, if the are contained in medicines they have to put warnings on them( eye irritation, breathlessness etc..) but they don't have to be put on our food!!!!!

    How ridiculous is that??

    Just to add another dampner on wetherspoon, The steak isnt fresh when it comes in either... It was killed about 3 months before you get to eat it... Its frozen for 10 weeks prior to ordering it in, everything is vacummed packed.
