Mmmm Mechanically Separated Chicken

I bet you thought that this picture was of some gum, or maybe some sort of taffy.  WRONG!  This alien looking pink goo is actually the chicken you have been eating your whole life when you have it in patty or nugget form.  That 20 piece McNugget doesn’t look as appetizing anymore now does it?  Basically, this chicken paste comes from an entire chicken being pressed through a sieve.  That includes the bones, guts, eyes, and other chicken parts.  Here’s my favorite step taken from the original source Early Onset of Night:

There’s more: because it’s crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia, soaked in it, actually. Then, because it tastes gross, it will be re-flavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color.

At least you have all of those delicious dipping sauces to help add a little flavor to your pasted chicken parts!  I can’t wait to eat this garbage again!  You’ve been wishing you never read this article…
