Burger King in Britain and Ireland have cut a beef supplier because its meat was found laced with horse meat DNA.

This past weekend, the fast food giant replaced all Silvercrest meat with deliveries from another supplier as a “voluntary and precautionary measure,” it said. Burger King, which is based in Miami, said it launched an independent and ongoing probe upon learning that Irish regulators had discovered equine DNA in meat from Silvercrest’s facilities. Ft.
