We’ve all heard the stories about what goes into chicken nuggets, and we’ve all joked about the cartilage, lips and a**hole that go into hotdog meat, but wait, there’s more.
Turns out there’s a whole slew of disgusting facts about processed meat that we didn’t know. For starters, it’s technically legal for there to be a little bit of rodent hair in your meat. Yes, rodent HAIR.
Additionally, did you know that the salmon you buy from the grocery store probably isn’t naturally pink? The salmon’s feed has been injected with dye to help it look that way. We shudder to think about what its actual colour is.
The scariest thing of all is that big food companies — and we’re talking Nestle, Kraft and other gigantic corporations — won’t reveal where their meat comes from. We’re one step away from yelling “Soylent Green!” and running out of our office.
For more on these and other disturbing facts, check out the video, above. Be warned: it’s gross.
