    Surely this is just the cheap stuff ?

    Chlorine-washed chicken Q&A

    Over here people are scared that we will be submerged in this stuff after a trade deal.

    Makes me sad that any of Gods creatures are so poorly kept. As for Chlorine we get it in water too so we are already exposed daily.

    I understand that it is bleached to wash away the effects of the poor treatment that they suffer.The fear is that it will turn up in nuggets and so on. Nobody is going to buy it as "chicken".

    Oh for pete's sake.

    Chickens are filthy creatures.I think every person on the planet should have to raise and butcher meat animals at some point, so we don't have to deal with this sort of hysterical nonsense.

    at my house, this is how it went:

    Butcher the bird (use an axe)
    Boil a huge pot of water. Dip the bird in the boiling water. If you are doing multiple birds, that water is nasty. But the point isn't to clean the birds, but to loosen their feathers for plucking. Industrial processors throw some bleach in there to kill things like ecoli or salmonella, most likely, just as a precaution. It doesn't matter, because this is just the beginning of the process.

    Pluck the chicken.

    Singe the chicken

    Gut the chicken

    Wash the chicken again. This time under running water, we also use some soap just because. We used a scrub brush.

    There you have it.

    Yes, it's terribly alarming and dirty work to flap handed faggots who can't stand to look upon real life.

    This is the very point that koshergrl accidentally made - People no longer raise and slaughter their own food. The chickens people are eating now come from factories. Chickens really are not "filthy" at all but in a factory setting, they have no choice. After death, they're soaked in feces and the bleach bath does not wash that away.

    Er..yes, people do still raise and slaughter their own food.
    Yes store chickens come from factories. That's kind of my point. The water gets dirty. It gets dirty when you do it at home, too. The bleach ofsets that.
    And yes, chickens are fucking filthy. Close your pet chicken's ears so she doesn't hear me write that. They literally eat shit, and dead stuff, and they bathe in dirt.
