Some Grocery Stores Have Banned Carbon Monoxide-Treated Beef and Pork.

For many meat eaters the proof is in the pink. They use the meat's color as a guideline to determine the food's freshness. But, many meat manufacturers actually inject the food with carbon monoxide to give it that fresh, reddish-pink look.

Thanks for the article, altho it's leaving a bad taste in my mouth!!! LOL!

Makes me glad that we have a "small-town" butcher counter in our local grocery store.....Hopefully they don't have that technology and wouldn't use it if they could!

I thought that some meat was dyed ! I do know that when we get meat from our rancher neighbors it doesn't look anything like supermarket meat.

That is really disturbing! I'm glad that some stores are banning it.

That is just horrible, scary and a bit disturbing ! Are we such idiots as consumers that we need artificial treatments to make our foods acceptable to us ?
I always find it funny in the US that the supermarkets polish the fruits and even vegetables !?! We end up with plastic tasting vegetables.
To me if it's covered in earth and is a bit "knobbly", it's probably a good sign !

I think the main problem is how removed we have become with the source of our foods. Most people don't want to think of their meat running around , breathing, clucking or mooing. It makes people uncomfortable to know how their dinners came to be on the plate. Sad. We need to teach kids ( and adults) about food production .
