“We just don’t know how it got there. We made the burger in the lab. There were no horses around, no one visited a Tesco or anything. We’re trying to get to the bottom of this,” senior technician on the project revealed.
The lab grown burger laced with horse meat is a serious setback to the project and important funding for the research lab could be halted as a result of the scandal.
“If I wanted horse meat burgers I would have gone to a supermarket. This burger cost £250,000 to grow in the bloody lab. I’m furious,” one of the volunteers who tasted the burger for a dare told the BBC.
