Honestly, I don`t care. Meat is meat. However, that ammonia stuff is bu11poo. I haven`t been able to find a single source on the internet confirming it.

Sigon: I agree, After doing a little searching, Found several videos showing how `mechanically separated` chicken is processed. There are no guts, eyeballs, beaks, etc., As was my hunch the FDA would not allow such stuff in the human food supply.

McDonalds chicken nuggets do not use `mechanically separated` chicken anyways, If they did they would have to include that information in their ingredient list. According to Wiki they use boneless chicken, A bunch of starch ingredients, Binders, Flavoring, And Emulsifiers. A couple of the ingredients are a bit troubling, But the FDA does allow them in minute amounts.

I work in the food industry, I`ve been in slaughter houses and processing facilities...I`ve seen first hand what Mechanically separated chicken looks like and that is NOT what it looks like, that is nothing what any meat would look like going through the "process" they describe...get your information from better sources...

Oh no, Heaven forbid I eat some chicken nuggets once in a long while because it looks like this. Showing me this stupid stuff isn`t going to stop me from eating it on occasion. It hasn`t harmed me and it tastes fine.

actually it`s just the meat that would be impossible to get off a bone so it seporates it from the bone. there`s no bone in it... apparantly. but it`s still so disgusting that it isnt allowed to be called "meat" it has to be called artificially separated.

It`s also kind of funny we are made to feel bad about using the bits of food that otherwise people would throw away. In the interest of not being wasteful and feeding a ever growing population, it seems only logical to come up with ways to utilize the less desirable parts.

Does it make us fat? The thing is, anything in excess does. We shouldn`t think that because we are using these less desirable parts and making meals economically feasible for low income homes that somehow this is the culprit for the expanding waistline in America.

Even if, it`s no more disgusting to see in production than surimi, and I doubt many people fear eating imitation crab.
Are people really that unaware of food production and preparation? Furthermore are they that squeamish?

And nuggets at Wendy`s and McDonalds (at least these two I know for sure) advertise all-white meat. Still processed, but when you say it`s all-white meat, it`s all-white meat. You can`t lie about that sh*t (there`s probably a certain percentage minimum, but nothing is pure so oh well).

Besides the obvious fact that this extremely misleading and erroneous, who cares what the hell is in it? The only thing that makes the unpopular parts of an animal gross is the fact that they`re unpopular -- silly taboos we created ourselves. The only thing unhealthy about it is the manner they`re prepared. I`m well aware that the chicken nuggets I`m eating are bad for me... because they`re fried in f*cking oil.

While certain aspects of this is true, overall it is very misleading.

It says that all parts of the mechanically separated chicken (Bones, Guts, Eye balls) is processed through a sieve.

This is incorrect. First off the eyeballs and guts aren`t used. Second, the bones aren`t processed through the sieve. Only the edible parts are processed "through" the sieve. This means that while the edible parts are processed through, all of the non-edible parts are left behind.

Here is a funny video showing a rudimentary way of processing this in your kitchen. It also shows how awesomely sick kids can be.
Processed chicken fail

"Ohhhh god that is discusting now when i look at it i think of pink styrofom UGHHHHHH"
i remember a teacher i had in high school telling me that chicken was made like this. i don`t care. the mexicans at mcdonalds spit in my food because i tell them to hurry up with my order. the food at buffets gets dropped on floors all the time (my buddy worked in one and we both still ate there.) i worked in a factory where soda was manufactured and theres an area where we brush the rat poo off the cans(yes the mouth part). almost any store-bought food product is nasty in some way

Heh, they don`t put the entire chicken in a grinder to make chicken nuggets...although they do separate the meat from the bones after taking the best cuts. Tendons and skin and whatnot will get in there, but not guts and eyeballs.

It tastes bad, so it`s artificially reflavored. It looks bad, so it`s artificially recolored.

Why do we bother doing all that to make it edible?

When I buy chicken nugget type things, it`s got grain to it like "real" chicken. I`m guessing not everything is made of that.
