The best of #burgergate

The discovery of horse meat in beef burgers on sale in British and Irish supermarkets has shocked many people and raised questions about how little some customers know about where their meat comes from.

While traces were found in products at a number of supermarkets, the most controversial finding is that a burger from the Tesco Every Day Beef Burger range was found to contain 29 percent horse meat.
