    I worked for a school system and used to refer to certain lunchroom items as "meat product, extruded white" and "meat product, extruded brown". I never thought of "meat product, extruded PINK"!

    According to Snopes it is not the whole bird. Mechanically seperated means the meat is seperated from the bones using a machine. Been around since the 60's. Kinda looks like toothpaste.

    Like I said on the other thread. That stuff looks like hot dog filler. I'm sure they have chicken nut filler too that looks more like regurgitated chicken.

    Thanks Imp. I can't believe how many people took that picture and the info on it at face value. Shows how gullible people are.

    The video I posted in the other thread shows it being made an the chicken comes out looking just like that stuff in that picture, color an all. So I believe it is what they say it is but its not being used for nuggets. Not in the US anyway. It is in England.

    The Corn Kahunas are nagging Congress to allow them to change the name from High Fructose Corn Syrup to Corn Sugar... not changing the product, just want the name to change so all the people who've been avoiding any product with HFCS will be suckered into buying it as CS... they're betting that we're all stupid enough not to notice. I like to think "no way!" and yet...

    Yup, after seein that hubby said "I will never eat a mcnugget again" I said how about the chicken breast select tenders!?


    And in school we had what we called "mystery meat".. I would often ask if it was yak, aardvark or gnu?
