Michael Scannell, Director of Food and Veterinary Office at the EU, explained that the issue of horse meat presents several complications for EU inspectors. "Any third party country wishing to export equine meat to the EU has to fulfill certain requirements. Horse meat isn't a particularly large category of animal products and you don't find many slaughterhouses that specialize in the species," he explained at a recent European Parliament Intergroup Meeting. Further, he said, "This particular commodity is complicated by the fact that it comes from horses which are dual use. Horses are not necessarily seen as food producing animals. Because horses enter the food chain after working as show or race horses, or pleasure or sport horses, they've had vastly different lives than animals that are raised specifically for their meat. And horses are routinely treated with medications and other substances that are not welcome in the food chain.

Scannell says that the import of horse meat from third party countries (non EU member countries) is contingent on those countries' achieving EU benchmarks for animal health, food safety and requirements at point of import.

Scannell pointed out that the World Trade Organization does not consider this particular issue relevant, but EU officials reject the idea that humane treatment of animals is not as important as the physical health of animals that wind up at the abattoirs.
