Wow. It used to be marginal food was marketed to pet food manufacturers becuase it was deemed NFHC (Not for human consumption).

But fark it all, people will eat anything these days.

Now, tuna scrape.

Sounds like tea party think to me..."What do you mean I shouldn't eat that?!? (You commie fascist pinko bastage) How dare you tell me what I can and can't eat!! I'll show you".... nom, nom, nommmm

/wonders if that'd work with some really bad things, like 80 year old white paint chips or chunks of old pipe insulation.

About all I got out of that is that cooked garbage with ammonia apparently doesn't cause salmonella quite as readily as uncooked garbage

I don't really understand why this is in the news. Is it a recent trend to put dogfood-quality scraps in human food, or is it something that has always occurred but nobody used to talk about it? If it is recent, why is it happening (i.e. changes in FDA or USDA regulation, or changes in the dogfood market)? And if it has always occurred, was it just hidden or did people not care until now?

So... tuna scrape is safer because it doesn't go through the processes that make cow carcass pickings safe to eat?

Sorry, I want my marginal foodlike products to be thoroughly processed and doused with whatever kills the bacteria etc.

Presumably people still need to eat, so the jobs eliminated from slime factories will be reconstituted elsewhere.

Tuna scrape, lovey term.

A good sushi chef wastes nothing. They'll run a spoon along the bones of the animal to get the last of the meat. This is what gets used in maki. Don't like it? Order nigiri or sashimi instead.
 
2012-04-22 09:15:46 PM  
If you want to feed the world with these type of products (eg. meat) then you have to be willing to use every scrap available.

I just watched a clip of Reagan denying the need to accomodate the limited nature of resources saying "I don't believe that America can't have a brighter tomorrow", so I'm getting a kick out of cat food being sold to people as food.

Well, I guess probably one or two Americans will have a brighter tomorrow if 30 million people eat cat food at people food prices. So there's that.

I have "food trauma" over saurkraut. The first time I encountered it, the odor caused me to throw up so now everytime I smell it I get queasy.

So...I'll have to take your word for it.

I don't agree with the Reagan thing, but I think American standards of acceptable food has greatly increased over the past hundred years to an unsustainable level.

Tuna scrape is just stripping the extra meat off the bones. it's not treated,. It's just smaller pieces of the hole filet. Perhaps it was once used in cat food, but lobster was once a poor food. Tastes change. Today people love spicy tuna.

70 years ago, spam was an acceptable meat. 100 years ago you would not have meat every day.

Blood that gets cooked and used for feed in this country is cooked and used for sausage in Europe. Our understanding of what is acceptable food is fluid and highly variable by culture.

Because it's the outrage du jour. Pink slime beef is all the rage to get, well, all raged up about. So most of these hipsters are going to stop eating beef altogether and stick to poultry. Like Chicken McNuggets, Chicken Patty Sandwiches, Chicken fries and all those other items that are "made from 100% white meat chicken."

Really, if you want to eat anything that you know for a fact is real food, you need to kill it or grow it yourself. Last nights main course was Elk Steak. Tonight's was Walleye. I also have a Turkey in the smoker that just yesterday was walking around minding his own business. I know I'm a bad guy for being a hunter, but I haven't had any slime at all this weekend. I've not had an ounce of growth hormone, and none of the stuff I killed was on antibiotics.

Years ago this process didn't exist so those scraps actually went to the Jell-o factory or the dog food plant. Now companies have discovered they can run the garbage through a convoluted process and turn a profit. If you find McDonald's food edible then pink slim shouldn't be much of an issue with you.
 
2012-04-22 09:50:26 PM  
Well if that isn't the stupidest non-issue non-article. Fark indeed. This is in fact, nothing at all like pink slime. You dumb hillbillies.

"ground backmeat scraped from the bones of the fish"

I just don't get what the problem is with this.

I mean, I can't say I eat a lot of ground tuna, but I don't think tuna burgers are "cat food" not fit for human consumption just because the tuna is ground up instead of being in steak form.
