Re: Coop caught selling old meat as new

Although perfectly good meat can smell funny to some people - an organic chicken can smell or taste much stronger than a bleached cheap one.
Bleaching is a popular trick to extend the fresh look of chicken breasts. Injecting water too make it meat heavier - that's why they put the pad at the bottom of the box nowdays.

Always read the label too. I saw beef mince last week that had 15% binding agents in it. I guess I wouldn't have needed breadcrumbs in my meatballs with that stuff

I only buy meat now at my local butcher. The better taste is worth the premium. I'd prefer to eat less better quality stuff anyways. Same goes for wine.
