Didn't realize it, but yesterday (or so the media said last night ...) was the start of BlobFest which celebrates the filming of the sci fi classic "The Blob" in Phoenixville, PA...
where the photo above (without my editing) was taken

Somehow I think this is appropriate when I think about processed (not fresh, ground, "pink slime" venison) meat

Resistance to "processed food" is common because people are naturally sensitive about what they eat. I share that sentiment. However, I try to remind myself that processing is necessary for an industry faced with providing food for 400 million people. Even a hotdog is processed. Understanding of these realities is commonly lacking in the general public. People who hunt and consume their game have mulled these principals enough to disregard these sensitives for themselves. I used to work with a hunting teacher who often talked to his students in autumn of the impending "spam season."

BTW, I happen to love Spam.

Frank, I've always been convinced that Spam is God's processed meat...he'd rather have us eat that over bologna or hot dogs...

Frank,

There is processed food and processed food... that is, not all the same.

You did not just hold up hot dogs as an example of good processed food, did you?

There are ways to process and deliver food without having to use known carcinogens and other extremely harmful chemicals.

Plain sugar, plain salt have been used to process food for generations until the chemical plants needed new business and looked to the food industry.

Ah well, don't listen to me. Just look at recent reports about mac and cheese products and diet sodas. The issues with these two products have been known for a long time among health experts but are now just getting out to "the public".

True, it depends upon the process. If you grind up a perfectly good steak into burger its not really "processed", it only changed in physical form. Dogs and burgers are truly American favorites. Anyone here have a problem with hotdogs and burgers?

Sliding sideways, markets now sell a lot of fish that is FAS, frozen at sea. It is a lot fresher and tastes better than fish sitting in the hold for a week before returning to port. Point is that "process" can be a lot of things. The food industry faces many challenges providing for 400 million of us.

Regarding pink slime, notice that mainstream media is not covering it. When media forms get caught with their pants down they protect each other. You are a story when you make a mistake; but when they make a mistake, it didn't happen.
