A shocking new report shows that meat - including feathers, hides, hair and bones - meant for dog food might have made it's way into the human food chain.

The Elliott Review into food supply suggests that this 'industrial scale' fraud may have netted the criminals behind it a cool £3million.

Even though the scandal was unearthed in 2005, a lack of 'investigative resource' meant it wasn't pursued. WTF?

New research also suggests chicken breasts on sale in supermarkets can be up to a fifth water thanks to a controversial 'tumbling' method in a cement mixer-style contraption.

The meat is then sold as own-label ranges in Asda, Aldi and other supermarkets.

2013 has been a bad year for meat lovers who've been made to question their beloved red meat and now their fail-safe chicken.

After the horse meat scandal rocked supermarkets earlier this year, we've all been giving our frozen ready-meals a cursory extra glance, right?
