Rat Meat being sold as Boneless Chicken Wings
Shocking news: The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning that millions pounds of rat meat is being sold as “boneless chicken wings” in restaurants and grocery stores all over America.
According recent reports, concerns about public safety has been raised by FDA, after several illegal shipping containers containing rat meat that was intended to be shipped to different meat processing plants across America and resold as chicken, were seized by customs officers at the Port of San Francisco.
As FDA spokesman, Jenny Brookside reveals, consumers aren’t able to notice the difference:
“Unfortunately, it is too late for the produce that has already been sold on the market. It is up to consumers to try to identify the quality and source of the meat that is packaged, but there is no absolute way of determining for 100% if the meat in your plate is chicken or rat” she admits with honesty. “If you find that your chicken wings taste slightly different from usual, it is a good bet that they might be counterfeit meat, but this can be easily hidden through the use of different ingredients and spices,” she acknowledges as a warning.
FDA is making great efforts to remove the rat meat that is being sold as boneless chicken wings from the market, but FDA is still issuing warnings after it estimated additional 1, 000, 000 pounds of the counterfeit rat meat circulating on the market.
Each consumer should be acquainted with this interesting, yet disturbing information. A 2014 study by FDA, reported 36 million pounds of illegal counterfeit meat sold in the U.S every year.
