Horse meat slaughterhouse set to open in New Mexico

The European horse meat scandal where products labeled as "beef" were found to contain horse meat hasn't directly affected American consumers.

European outlets of Taco Bell, Burger King and IKEA purchased mislabeled beef that was found to contain horse meat DNA.

That's because the sale of horse meat is illegal here. In fact, for 6 years, even the slaughter of horses for their meat was banned.

But a recent change in federal policy will now allow production of horse meat to be shipped overseas.

CNN's Casey Wian is Out Front in New Mexico, where plans for a horse slaughterhouse are not going down easy with everyone.

"We believe the judge's decision was clearly an error, and that we will prevail on appeal," Bloomberg said.
