Mechanically Separated Meat


Also known as MSM, mechanically separated meat (or "pink slime") is the source of most fast food chicken nuggets, defined by the FDA as "a paste-like and batter-like poultry product produced by forcing bones, with attached edible tissue, through a sieve or similar device under high pressure to separate bone from edible tissue." Dyes are added to make it look less like pink goop and more like white chicken, along with ammonia to kill any bacteria.
