The wrong type of meat. You mean edible?

I'd give her the wrong type of meat, if you know what I mean

I'm guessing long pork.  I can't imagine any other "almost mistake" involving the wrong kind of meat that would merit firing people.

What in God's name is the "wrong type of meat" for HAGGIS?!

......human?!? [cue ominous music]
 
2018-01-20 01:26:58 PM  
They say music is the food of love,
Let's see if you are hungry enough,
Take a bite, take another, just like a good boy would,
Get a sweet thing on the side,
Home cooking, homicide,
Side order, could be your daughter,
Fingerlicking good

Come on baby, eat the rich,
Put the bite on the son of a biatch,
Don't mess around, don't give me no switch,
C'mon baby eat the rich
C'mon baby eat the rich

Sittin' here in a restaurant,
Tell the waiter just what you want
Is that the meat, you wanted to eat,
How would you ever know?
Hash browns an' bacon strips,
I love the way that you lick your lips,
No fooling, I can see you drooling,
Feel the hunger grow

Come on baby, eat the rich,
Put the bite on the son of a biatch,
Don't mess around, don't give me no switch,
C'mon baby eat the rich
C'mon baby eat the rich

Eat up, eat you, eat me,
Eat two, get one free
Shetland pony, extra pepperoni
Just pick up the phone,
Eat Greek, or eat Chinese,
Eat salad, or scarf up grease
You're on the shelf, maybe eat yourself,
Come on, bite my bone

Come on baby, eat the rich,
Put the bite on the son of a biatch,
Don't mess around, don't give me no switch,
C'mon baby eat the rich
C'mon baby eat the rich

I mean, haggis contains heart, liver, and lungs and is boiled in a stomach. What did they grab the set off a red flag. Balls and assholes?

Maybe they tried to put some good stuff in. "You put lamb in there!!! You're sacked!"

I was just about to ask what the difference was, apart from the shape, between haggis and sausage. (Never actually eaten haggis - I'm just talking based on the recipe.)

Haggis is generally "fresh" and boiled, sausage is cured (salted, nitrates, smoked, dried, fermented, etc). Even "fresh" sausage takes several days to "age" properly. That and the natural casing is "further south" than the stomach, although you're way, WAY more likely to get cellulose casing than animal casing.

involved the wrong type of meat being taken out from a store room and on to the factory floor - was picked up during stringent checks before any products could be affected.

Seems harsh. I mean, that's what the checks are for, right? And no product was affected.
Just bring the wrong one back and grab the right one.

Yeah, either there was a bit of overreaction or there are some juicy details we're not being told.

Juicy HAGGIS details.

I've had haggis in Scotland. The secret to making it palatable is how you sauce it. The American alternative is scrapple. Mmm, breakfast of champions on a snowy Philadelphia morning!

Haggis has more grain too... never seen a Hot Dog with barley in it.

I presume what happened was the wrong frozen meat was brought out and thawed before anybody realized it was wrong. The skinflint manager or owner fired the 4 people who could have kept that meat from having to be thrown away. So this article is really bragging that the factory fully follows food regulations.

That theory sounds plausible. Depending on how much meat they thaw at a time it could have been a very expensive mistake.

I lived & worked in Edinburgh for a while, and my experience was that even the Scots treated haggis as a novelty food. I thought it was delicious, but I also never had haggis that wasn't deep-fried, because damn do they love frying the everloving shiat out of everything.

/still have an expired can of haggis serving as a bookend

///it's Grant's brand, now with 30% more haggis
 
2018-01-20 02:44:41 PM  
I see the "what's the wrong kind of meat" for haggis question has been asked, so I'll proceed to another:

What kind of "wrong kind of meat" sits on a shelf in their storeroom?

Address to a Haggis by Robert Burns

Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o the puddin'-race!
Aboon them a' ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye worthy o' a grace
As lang's my arm.

The groaning trencher there ye fill,
Your hurdies like a distant hill,
Your pin wad help to mend a mill
In time o need,
While thro your pores the dews distil
Like amber bead.

His knife see rustic Labour dight,
An cut you up wi ready slight,
Trenching your gushing entrails bright,
Like onie ditch;
And then, O what a glorious sight,
Warm-reekin, rich!

Then, horn for horn, they stretch an strive:
Deil tak the hindmost, on they drive,
Till a' their weel-swall'd kytes belyve
Are bent like drums;
The auld Guidman, maist like to rive,
'Bethankit' hums.

Is there that owre his French ragout,
Or olio that wad staw a sow,
Or fricassee wad mak her spew
Wi perfect scunner,
Looks down wi sneering, scornfu view
On sic a dinner?

Poor devil! see him owre his trash,
As feckless as a wither'd rash,
His spindle shank a guid whip-lash,
His nieve a nit;
Thro bloody flood or field to dash,
O how unfit!

But mark the Rustic, haggis-fed,
The trembling earth resounds his tread,
Clap in his walie nieve a blade,
He'll make it whissle;
An legs an arms, an heads will sned,
Like taps o thrissle.

Ye Pow'rs, wha mak mankind your care,
And dish them out their bill o fare,
Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware
That jaups in luggies:
But, if ye wish her gratefu prayer,
Gie her a Haggis

here is MacSween's product line; http://www.macsween.co.uk/products/
It does include some exotic items that involve more expensive or hard to source meats. Those fired might have ruined the venison and/or wild boar meats and screwed up the production schedule.

It's rarely a mistake people get fired for but usually their attitude. You get some "yeah, yeah you don't need to explain anything to me" types and sure enough when they screw up it's never their fault.

Our family is not Scottish, but my dad and his Hungarian friend used to like going to the Burns' Night dinners. I think it was more for social/business networking and the Scotch drinking  than for the haggis eating.
