That’s pink meat, not white, in your chicken nuggets
Ah those juicy morsels of chicken meat wrapped in a crispy cover just waiting to be dipped into a sauce of your choice.
Except, it’s not actually white meat they use in those nuggets and chicken burgers.
Take a close look at the image at the top of the post. That my good people is the result of what is euphemistically called mechanically separated chicken, and that is what actually goes into all those fast food chicken nuggets and burgers.
As Michael Kindt points out in the post to go along with that image:
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.
