After two weeks of denying its food was contaminated, Burger King confirmed Thursday night that some of its burgers and Whoppers in the UK contained horse meat.



The fast food chain, which has more than 500 UK outlets, first released a series of ‘absolute assurances’ that its products were not involved in the horse meat scare. But new tests reveal this was incorrect, according to The Daily Mail.
