Default Chicken nuggets, chicken patties

http://early-onset-of-night.tumblr.c...ed-chicken-its


Say hello to mechanically separated chicken. It’s what all fast-food chicken is made from—things like chicken nuggets and patties. Also, the processed frozen chicken in the stores is made from it.

Basically, the entire chicken is smashed and pressed through a sieve—bones, eyes, guts, and all. it comes out looking like this.

There’s more: because it’s crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color.

Yet another good reason to go vegetarian, if you aren't already.

I will confess to eating raw hot dogs. I avoid chicken nuggets & strips like the plague - I can feel my arteries constricting just looking at them. That tube of meat-like product looks like an albino anaconda or something.

Yeah, but it tastes friggin' good.

I'll add mechanically separated chicken to cell phone towers, CFCs, terrorism, the government, meteors, zombies, yellowstone, Y2K, 2012, WiFi, oil based paint, flu, anthrax, lung cancer, throat cancer, ass cancer, scrote cancer, and any movie directed by Michael Bay on my list of things that are probably really bad for me and may kill me.

Mechanically mutilated chicken is low on my 'give a damn' list.

It does NOT taste good - it tastes like butt cancer. Now if you're looking for good tasting garbage food, try some Cheddar & Sour Cream chips - Hostess, I think. Sounds appalling, tastes divine.

Dusty just opened one indolent eye long enough to tell me to hiss at you on her behalf. She still hates you.

I love Chicken McNuggets too!!

Hell, they can't be any worse than HEAD CHEESE or Blutwurst. Two equally repulsive ways to use leftover offal.

Which is worse; chicken nuggets, or haggis? Gotta love a properly prepared and cooked set of sheep lights.

That is gross, BUT...I don't know about McDonalds nuggets, but I can tell you that the Banquet chicken tenders don't use it. Check the labels on the "nuggets" and hot dogs that you buy--if it doesn't say "Mechanically separated" then it's not.

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
Mechanically separated meat may not be described simply as "meat" on food labels, but must be labeled as "mechanically separated" pork, chicken, or turkey in the ingredients statement. Hot dogs can contain no more than 20 percent mechanically separated pork.

Don't confuse the working "chicken nuggets' in the article with "Chicken McNuggets" which is referenced in your link.

You mean the original post WASN'T intending to defame the McDonalds "Chicken McNuggets?"



Gosh, I am so sorry..,





Non-health food "chicken nuggets" could certainly be made from "caustically processed meat by-products" I imagine..,

If you mean heart, liver, and lungs, cooked in the stomach..,
