Pink Slime of the Sea

Tuna Scrape really? At least 141 peaple sick from a salmonella outbreak thatwas linked to sushi. The suspect is something called Nakaochi Scrape. Nakaochi Scrape is described by the Food and Drug Administration as backmeat from a tuna fish, this meat is specifically scraped off the bones and looks like a ground product. Sounds so yummy! Now this meat is being compared to the the lean textured beef called pink slime. Indeed it does seem to be the fish version of pink slime. Just what we need, another disgusting and harmful product to put into our systems. Tuna Scrape is the part of the fish that still remains after the filets have been removed. This meat is scraped off the bone with a spoon like device. It is sometimes chopped into smaller piece but no further processing is done after that. So I guess it isn’t as bad as the meat pink slime but it is just so gross to think about.
