:bash: went shopping at the local wallyworld this week (i normally am encouraged to leave the shopping to DH). while trying to purchase some beef/pork/chicken type stuff i noticed that each and every package says it contains 14-18 percent of some liquid meant to improve flavor and texture??? i could not read the tiny printing that says what the liquid is so i hunted up a meat dept worker and asked him. he did not know and i dont think he could read either as i gave him a package explaining i could not see it and he said again "i dont know". being concerned for my families health i asked to speak to a manager...one finally showed up and told me (after reading the package) that "it says it is salt, sodium, water and natural flavors". So LOL i asked why they would need to add natural flavors to raw meats? dont they already have their own flavors included in the product? he looked at me like i was nuts! i did discover that ground beef does not have this "stuff" added so I bought ten pounds of ground beef! DH abouat went into shock when i got home, wanted to know where was the pork roast, chicken breasts, and stew beef he had put on the list! Since when was meat not meat? Is it the same at Safeway and Smiths....no hope of real meat? If I bought 10 pounds of pork roast then 1.5 pounds of that would be added liquid enhancers....at 6.98 per pound I DONT THINK SO!!!!
