Giving up red meat? Next time you’re in England( ( Or if you live there..) you may want to think twice before you order chicken. Recent tests by the British Food Standards Agency on imported chicken show they’re not exactly what you’d expect. Poultry companies in Holland and Belgium have been pumping water into their birds to inflate their weight and then advertising it as “more meat.” But how do you artificially inflate chickens? Inject the birds with extra protein, which allows the meat to retain more water. Chicken protein? No-- The tests revealed that pork and beef protein had been put into the chickens.

hold on!

the birds arent injected with protein, the poultry, post slaughter, is injected with a water and poultry protein mix. The practice is europe wide and not restricted to england.

In the UK there was a scandal some time ago where trace concentrations of non-poultry protein were detected in the chicken breasts, the majority of which i believe were sourced from holland/netherlands.

The US FDA has approved the injection of poultry protien into poultry in the US. It is likely that the chicken you eat has been 'bulked' in this manner, unless you killed it yourself.

It should be noted that US beef is banned from the European Union as the injected hormones used have been identified as carcinogenic.

Oh, I knew the US did it, I thought that was pretty standard knowledge. I didn't think many knew there was something similar in England with the meat interesting.

What I find more disturbing than the injected chickens is that the Hoff stole his dance moves from me.
:( I dance like David Hasselhoff.
