          AS of now, perhaps... but not a very sustainable outcome. Why not instead, all petition our farms and food agencies, to say that we want organic humainly raised pastured beef?

            It was sold to be made into the slop people are served in hospitals, the military and schools. Aka: the step-up from value-brand ready-meals.
            No, it's not good. But it was never expected to be excellent, either.

            As a side-note: it was the agency in charge of withdrawing infected meat from the market who then sold it on for cheap. In other words, either they discovered that the load of Bovine TB required to harm a human was lower than previously assumed (in which case they committed fraud by confiscating it in the first place), or they were gambling with human health (and possibly lives). Either way, a criminal offense.

              hmm, i'd prefer they remove it from general consumption and make a mistake about the TB than not. It's hardly fraud, it's being conservative and better safe than sorry, if they can offset costs by selling on safe meat then all for the better.
              If it is truly still harmful then it is a very shameful situation indeed.

                        You misunderstood: they took it away from the rightful owners, unpaid, under the premise that it's unfit for human consumption. If it is unfit for human consumption, they should have disposed of it. But they confiscated it and then resold it for human consumption. If they lied, they are fraudulently conning companies out of their livestock (and therefore out of their wages) for personal profit.
                        It's like working at a charity shop and underpricing a valuable donation so you can buy it for yourself and sell it for a huge profit.

                          What you say happened doesn't seem to match up with the linked article.

                          Herds are checked for bovine TB every one to four years. Any infected cattle are slaughtered, and the Government pay farmers up to £1,700 per animal in compensation.

                            hmm, if a cow tested positive and they took the herd but the majority were fine and healthy, then what would be the best thing to do?
                            I'm not saying always trust government agencies but also don't take everything from newspaper without a pinch of salt
