Chapman’s studies are the first meat surveys in the United States since 1995. The first of Chapman’s studies took on 48 different samples of mixed frozen and fresh specialty ground meats from online retailers, testing their content. Of the 48, ten were found to be totally mislabeled, containing a mix of species, including two with horse meat.

On the bright side, all ground beef tested came back as 100% ground beef.
