I posted the statement below and it seems to be heavily implied that the food did contain horsemeat.
Q: Why did Evangerís test for horsemeat?
A: Evangerís has been making Hunk of Beef since 2002 without incident. There were missing pieces in the puzzle as to why these pugs got sick. When pentobarbital popped up, we did heavy research and found that it is not common practice to euthanize cows, but it is common practice to euthanize horses. Things just werenít adding up, and we wanted answers.
Q: If the FDA tested negative for horsemeat, why did you publish your test results?
A: Evangerís knew the announcement about horsemeat would have a negative impact, but felt transparency was best. We felt the right thing to do was to come out and tell the public of our findings, even though the FDAís findings detected only beef.
I felt that Evanger's responses to some of the FDA's inquiries into their factory and their foods were downright odd, especially the fly one at the end. I don't know who they have managing the damage control but I think they should look at hiring someone else because whoever they have now isn't doing a very good job and is really only digging the hole deeper.
