This is just stupid. I happily eat animal head, feet and viscera (offal). It's just playing to the squeamishness of people who'll only eat steak and is entirely irrelevant.One Food and Drug Administration (FDA) specialist says that the unrendered protein in food may come from heads, feet, viscera, and other animal parts.
Well, indeed. I seem to remember that during the mid-90s BSE scare here, human food was recalled too.Pet food has also been recalled during mad cow disease, or bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), outbreaks because of the risk that contaminated meat might have been processed into the food.
That's just one paragraph. I'd read the rest, but my head is already bleeding from the number of times I've banged it on the desk, and I worry if I read the article any further I'll lose enough brain cells to start agreeing with it.
