Wendy’s Chief Executive Director Boris said…
We only use about 60% beef, the rest is made of meat fillers mostly equine(Horse) meat. Using this type of meat is a cheaper expense for us, allowing us to competitively price our food while been profitable at the same time. What we are doing is not illegal or unhealthy. The FDA has approved the contents of the meat.
Horse meat has been used as a delicacy in some countries like China and South Africa, however it is taboo in the United States. Many people consider horses as pets and the consumption of horse meat is along the likes of a New New York Restaurant using dog meat which is looked down upon by most Americans.
Wendy’s is not the only fast food chain busted for using illegal meat as a beef supplement. Chipotle was also exposed.

So ask yourself this, will you still eat Wendy’s famous chili knowing its strange contents?
