Another great cartoon by Mac from The Daily Mail about the horsemeat scandal (click here to see yesterday's cartoon). A man and his wife are having their dinner. On the serving dish is a dead horse with its legs in the air. The woman, who is studying a piece of paper, comments, "Well, it says pork on the label."
What I like about this cartoon is that it is very visual, and easy to understand. The cartoon also highlights the fact that people rarely question what is written on the label, although we now know that even well-known brands such as Findus cannot be trusted to label their products correctly.
A label is a piece of paper that is attached to an product in order to give information about it. • EU legislation states that horsemeat can be sold in meat products on the condition it is declared on the label.
