Chicken Nugget Paste: Where it comes from (Via: The Huffington Post)

This is the source of that "mystery meat" inside the processed chicken nuggets found at the drive-thru or your local freezer department. You need to read this before allowing anyone you love to eat this disgusting paste product..
 These blurbs are straight out freightening:

Someone figured out in the 1960s that meat processors can eek out a few more percent of profit from chickens, turkeys, pigs, and cows by scraping the bones 100% clean of meat. This is done by machines, not humans, by passing bones leftover after the initial cutting through a high pressure sieve. The paste you see in the picture above is the result.

There's more: because it's crawling with bacteria, it will be washed with ammonia... Then, because it tastes gross, it will be reflavored artificially. Then, because it is weirdly pink, it will be dyed with artificial color.
But, hey, at least it tastes good, right?

High five, America!

This is important stuff to know the next time you chose a food product to feed your family, after all they are too young to understand what is best for them.  Children are marketed to heavily into believing they desire various food items without being informed what they are really eating.
