I believe that's incorrect. Reclaimed meats are the same thing as mechanically separated meats, which simply means the last bits of flesh are removed from the bones by a mechanical means, rather than by hand, which does not crush, break or pulverize the bone.

It is NOT rotten meat recycled.

hmmmm...well see i never really even realized that... i just assume that because I can see the huge slab of turkey or chicken that its okay...

truth be told it is super difficult to find food that has not been exploited with some crazy chemical or some horrible process...

even organic and whole grain are terms i dont trust anymore to the point that when i see whole grain i automatically assume this is a crap product

my goal is to hunt my own meat, and raise my own chickens and cows

beautiful

Boar's Head likes to claim their products are MSG free, but if you call their customer service line and press them, they'll admit that it is in some of their products. And, of course, there's the technology which breaks MSG down into its component chemicals and, when those are added to food, they don't have to be listed as MSG.

Go ahead and raise your own chickens and cows, but make sure you feed them grains, or whatever, grown from your own sources or you'll likely end up feeding them stuff grown from genetically altered seeds. Frankenfoods can't really be avoided any more.

On the other hand, why worry about it? You're gonna die one day anyhow, so what difference will a few more years make?

You make good points but for me I like to live as clean and healthy as possible.. I chew my food a lot and drink crazy amounts of water. I take a lot of cognition enhancing supplements and I am constantly researching how to optimize everything..so that is my goal: continuous optimization.

I am to the point that eating processed sugar gives me headaches (found this out in 2007 xmas time when I had a candy cane) ... so I donno..it is just always a continuous process to remove the bs ..

Further, not everyone can afford meat that is over $10 per pound.

I don't eat the meat that is in the article, but I'm sure most people know that they are not buying top-shelf meat called cotto salami. Some people care, and others don't.

It's not the meat remnants that bother me, it is the chemicals used in products like that, and well, almost all products. I've eaten blood sausage before, and it was ok for congealed blood, a little meat, and fat.

I have no problems eating it and matter in fact enjoy every stinking morsel of it.

You can take a picture of a leafy vegetable and make it look gross, don't mean it is.

I wish people would get off their high horses.....

As Sheryl Crow once said "I lived a healthy lifestyle, ate nutritious foods and exercised....yet I still got cancer"

as my grandmother said before she passed away at 92, "pass the whiskey"

I'm amused when people start raving about chemicals in their food. Everything on planet earth is made up of chemicals!

Everything edible looks "gross" when you take close up pictures of it.

The "discoloration blob" is probably nose pigment.
