Abstract

Recent weeks have seen concern among consumers about mislabelled products containing horse or donkey meat on supermarket shelves. Wim Verbeke argues that the presence of these products should not be of great concern. Since food safety does not seem to be an issue, the scandal is not likely to evolve into a full blown crisis, especially outside of the UK where horsemeat is not forbidden or taboo.
