Answer:

Meat originating from U.S. horses may indeed be more likely to contain residues of drugs banned by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in animals intended for consumption. In their landmark paper “Association of phenylbutazone usage with horses bought for slaughter,” Tufts researchers suggest that horsemeat derived from American horses may “pose a serious public health risk.”
