A National Audit Office “inquiry has found a dramatic increase in food fraud, with one in six products failing tests for the presence of undeclared species in 2012.” (http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2013/oct/10/uk-warned-another-horse-meat-scandal)

‘Undeclared species’ is deliciously vague. Can we expect slugs and snails and puppy dog tails? Toads and shrews and badger sinews? No, I’m being hysterically alarmist. Could there be alien meat in burgers?
