That's because it has a third of the amount of meat that it should have! Yuck.
Turkey Ham? TURKEY HAM!
Great deal if you like that kind of thing though.
#2
No thanks, don't want bird flu in my house. Who would do the cooking, washing and ironing etc if my bird was ill?

Definitely a good deal if you buy this anyway though.

It just sounds to much like a Peter Kay sketch to me though- TURKEY HAM, TURKEY HAM.

If I'd noticed I may have posted something a bit more constructive for my 100th post.
#3
Admittedly a good deal, but I would personally not enjoy Turkey Ham much ... !

Throw caution to the wind and check dates? And it freezes so well due to the high water content in the "meat" :)
#4
With the way that BM's business is nowadays, he should be paying US to eat his products!
I personally would not feed this product to my dogs, let alone my kids.

I like to know the provenance of my food. BM's definition of Norfolk turkey is processed in the UK, it could (and probably has) come from anywhere.

I would not eat BM plastic meat if you paid me.
Didn't he get a big hand out from the Government because of this Bird Flu?
#6
I just won't touch Bernard Matthews products on principle.
#7
it's still a false economy, you'd get much better value buying organic free range that hasn't been played about with..

Are we not meant to rate the deal and not just if we like the product or not??

I usually vote with a bit of both. Free stuff you won't eat is not a good deal.

Voted hot from me:thumbsup:
#11
Good offer and thanks for posting but like others i find any Bernard Mathews stuff to be tasteless.
#12
Gobble it up while you can !

But I think their image appears to tarnished now, I think this Christmas will be an interesting one for their board members (they could be running around like headless chickens! )

Sorry for the bad puns couldn't resist.
#13
I go through a 400g pack of Ham/Turkey/Chicken about every 3-4 days. This Turkey Ham is rank - pure rank. Good deal, but rank food, that gives off a wierd smell when you open the pack. Truly mankin'.

:-(
#14
good offer, however the use by dates are always within a week, not even I can fit 1kg of ham into a weeks sandwiches!!
#15
If it was:

Buy one - Get 99,999 free!

...it would still be a **** deal, why would anyone choose to eat this stuff! Even the own brand basic stuff will be better!

Why is it when somebody posts a deal like this, everybody feels the need to chip in and add their personal opinion and say how much they dislike it!.

Fine, if you don't like something, good for you!. But keep your opinions and views to yourself and resist the urge to tell the world about it - because quite frankly nobody cares!. It is not appropiate to vote it cold either just because you happen to dislike something - just move on. That's not the purpose of this forum.

Sorry to the OP for detracting attention away from the original topic.

If anybody feels so upset by my comments please send me a Private Message instead of posting in here.

Ermmmm, this is a Community.
When somebody posts an item, members of that 'Community' comment and or vote on it. If they have had trouble with the Company selling the item or the product the idea is that they post. That way people will become aware of the item or company BEFORE going ahead and purchasing it.
The majority of posters have said this is carp, so rather than go out and waste money on it, people may now save their money or buy from another supplier.
If everybody said how nice it was then people may go out and try it.
Do you understand?

If something is a waste of money, then people should be able to vote cold. If something is tasteless, poor quality, pumped full of water and short-dated then it doesn't matter how much of the stuff they are willing to give away, it is still a bad deal because chances are it will end up being thrown away.

Hoorah ! ! I didn't think think my posting would create such a furore !

I too was under the impression that this was a forum to share money saving deals ?

For those of you so concerned about the way BM operates, I have the unfortunate job of working in the food supply chain and see the movement of food (specifically meat) from source to consumer. The majority of pre-cooked chicken we consume comes in by the 40ft container load ready cooked and frozen from Thailand and Bangladesh where I'm sure animal husbandry is impeccable; beef from Argentina and Brazil has to be routinely passed through metal detectors on arrival in the U.K. There is one main U.S. owned company in the U.K. which produces ALL frozen pizzas, premium brand and own-label for the big stores, and this supplier in turn uses a small handfull of meat suppliers for its ingrediants. The same goes to frozen ready meals.

People may not like the way BM operates but his practices are by far not unique, more typical if anything. The bottom line with all manufacturers and retailers is to maximise the cash coming in and minimise the cash going out whilst operating within the law. Obviously this doesn't just apply to the food chain - it's inherant throughout the retail world. We (the consumer), or rather our money, are their targets. One of the reasons I joined this forum was that every now and again we could take advantage of these so called loss-leaders.... and by posting such an offer not have it subject to political and economic analysis.

If the product wasn't safe then would BM and Morrisons throw caution to the wind and think, "Let's take a gamble.... perhaps only a handfull of people will end up ill...??? " I think not.

So, if this deal isn't for you - fine. But don't knock it simply because you don't like the product or supplier.

:friends:


Interesting. :)

For me, it is not the safety that is the issue. It is the quality of the product. It is rubbish.

I prefer to spend a little extra and get a decent quality ham which (i) tastes good and (ii) has the texture of meat. So for that reason, I think this deal is cold.

It doesn't matter how much of the stuff they try to give you and tell you that you are getting it free, poor quality is still poor quality.
#23
this is a good deal and people shouldn't vote it cold just because they don't like the product, they are allowed to give their opinions which will help people decide on whether to buy it or not but personal tastes do not constitute whether it's a good deal or not.
i'm a vegetarian but i don't go around voting every deal cold just because it involves meat.

I am typing this message from approximately 2 miles (as the crow flies) from BM's Holton (bird flu) plant.

I know many people in the local area who work (or have worked) at this plant. Many of them won't eat the products, even with staff discount, which must tell you something!

In my opinion, a good deal is to purchase a quality product at a lower than normal retail price.

This one is not a quality product by any stretch of the imagination. Just because it's cheap doesn't make it a good deal.

Perhaps BM will offer a BOGOF on his turkey twizzlers....now there's a good deal!
#25
I've never seen people get into such a flap over turkey :?
#26
Although this is a good offer, I'm actually grateful to all the responses mentioning BM's current affairs and believe it is relevant to the deal and will raise awareness of the situation.

If you like the product, by all means buy it because it's great value, if you don't like the taste or you're not happy with the conditions the meat is prepared in, then stay clear as I will, as I hate the taste of Turkey Ham slices but don't mind the other meats in there range.

It is unfortunate that companies do try and barely stay within the legalities to save money, as it sounds very unsanitary to eat meat shipped in containers from all over the world and then the only precaution used is a metal detector, which says a lot as to what BM could expect the meat to go through in the process of being slaughtered and transorted from poor countries.
#27
Errrr, manky stuff. What is Turkey Ham anyway? And I can't believe you freeze the stuff and then feed it to your kids. I feel ill.

Freedom of speech is allowed and welcomed here on HUKD.

So because members disagree with your views they shouldn't comment. That's sounds narrow minded!

This forum aims to save members money which includes any discouragement away from a deal based on fact. Any negative comments against BM may help deter some who in this particular case may have sensitive taste buds or don't want to risk becoming ill. Admittedly some of the posts are flippant but there isn't anything wrong with having a sense of humour. Life would be dull without it. Perhaps you have taken things a bit too seriously.

It's very frustrating to have any deal cold voted with no comments as to why. Members should be allowed to post negative comments if they wish. I am not in the slightest upset by your comments but I do believe in being open and honest and on those grounds refuse to send you a private message.

Live and let live!

Would there have been so much condemnation of this deal had it been "Matthesons", "Morrisons" or "Tesco Finest" own brand products on this offer ?

Probably not. But they operate to much higher quality and production standards than Bernard Matthews.





Don't they ? ? ? ? .... :whistling: :whistling: :thumbsup:


I'm in the 'business' too - know where you're coming from on this.

The general public are merely taken in by the media unfortunately, and having limited knowledge of disease transmission/vectors/control measures etc, will accept what any tabloid have to publish on the topic.

Forgot to add another point regards these reformed meat products.

All these 'extra thin sliced ham/chicken/turkey' etc are made from meat 'trimmings' and bulked up with sugar/water/salt etc - they are all manufactured in the same manner, usually in the same plant - regardless if it's from Asda Morrisons Sainsburys - whatever.

The type of meats allowed into meat products and preparations has changed over the last few years with new EC legislation, and are more closely limited than they used to be - for instance, if Offal (heart/lungs etc) is used in the product, it must be declared as this and not counted towards the meat content - as it used to.
#30
I'm sure that this is a good offer in the grand scheme of things. But I boycotted BM the moment that I found out their bootiful Norfolk turkey actually comes from Romania. I saw it as false advertising, and I won't buy their product out of sheer principle. I won't be taken for a muppet by any company.
I buy Wiltshire ham off the deli counter, it has a so much nicer taste. Processed meat does nothing at all for me.

full of water too....

i would not take this meat even if it was free!!

Bernard Matthews products have received bad press in the past, in my opinion rightly so, I know several people who used to work at Great Witchingham, Norfolk plant and on a personal level I would never ever touch a BM product again. He is feeling the pinch of late, Jamie Oliver didn't do him much good with the turkey twizzler business. HOWEVER, he is only one of the few brought to light about the way food processing businesses operate. If you were to see what happened inside every food manufacturing plant, you would never eat another processed food again, you would eat free range meat, free range animal products and fruit and veg, oh hang on a minute what about the pesticides ........

This stuff is absolutely foul (fowl?).

Most ham sold is disgusting and not fit for human consumption.

Bernard Matthews is 28% water, but worse than that is how it is made.

Most people imagine that ham is made by gently smoking a pork leg and then boiling it.

Wrong.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/food/Story/0,,1607326,00.html


Most supermarket ham sold today, including premium ham, is formed or reformed ham. Formed ham is muscle meat from the leg bones. It is chopped and passed under needles which inject it with a solution of water, sugars, preservatives, flavourings and other additives, or put into a giant machine resembling a cement mixer and mixed with a similar solution. The process dissolves an amino acid called myosin so the meat becomes sticky and, when put into moulds, comes out looking like a whole piece of meat.

If the ham is to be presented as a traditional cut, a layer of fat is stuck round the edge of the mould to make it look as though it has been cut off a whole leg.

Reformed ham is made from chopped or emulsified meat which is not necessarily all muscle meat. Scraps left over from making formed ham may be used in reformed ham.

People have got absolutely no excuse for eating such sh1te as this: they wouldn't wear threadbare recycled clothes, or watch TV on an old 12" B&W screen, but have no qualms whatsoever about eating reformed turkey dung. FFS, food is the only thing keeping you alive, it's really not a good idea to eat garbage. We eat shamefully badly in this country thanks to the people that buy this junk - they should stop.

If you don't want to eat junk ham, buy 'traditional ham', or ham described as cooked 'on the bone' (even if it looks like a bone in the deli counter, it might just be formed muck in that shape).

There is far too much protein consumed in this country as it is, and not eating bulk 'ham' will do no one any harm, and plenty a lot of good.

If anyone wants further scientific information on how BM ham is made, then this might prove instructive:

http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/doi/abs/10.1111/j.1365-2621.1984.tb13193.x

Protein extraction from frozen, thawed turkey muscle with sodium nitrite, sodium chloride, and selected sodium phosphate salts.

Sample excerpt: exudate from 2% sodium chloride ham had less exudate than from 1% sodium chloride ham.
