CONSUMERS have demanded to know why corned beef is available.
As Asda recalled its corned beef after traces of a veterinary painkiller were found, shoppers became nauseous at the mere thought of a meat oblong with a yellowy crust.
Mother-of-two Emma Bradford said: “I couldn’t care less about the horse drugs, horses always look very healthy and tend to have excellent muscle tone.
“But to think that anyone could have walked into a shop and bought a tin of corned beef right off the shelf. Kids, even.
“Just thinking about the way it plops out of the can makes me do a bit of sick in my mouth.”
The existence of corned beef has highlighted other inexplicable foods like canned fried breakfasts and meat pies that you cook in the tin.
Government health advisor Dr Roy Hobbs said: “We are aware that there is some rank shit out there.
“But we can’t ban these horrible foods because they are popular with pensioners and also the kind of quiet loners that expose themselves on public transport.
“The bar codes on ‘all-in-one breakfast’ tins contain tracking devices that the police use to help locate perverts.”
He added: “I had a breakfast in a can once, it actually wasn’t too bad if you skip the sausage.”
