Caveat emptor

It seems an almost embarrassingly obvious joke to make, and so apologies if someone has beaten me to the punchline already, but it occurred to me while listening to the news this evening that, in a country where broadband products in some cases containing up to 100% copper can be marketed as "fibre optic" with very little public outrage, why are we surprised that "beef" products may contain horse meat? Complacency in one area of truth in advertising must surely bleed over into others, no? Surely what's good for the heifer is good for the stallion.
