    Hot Dogs - Legal requirement to mention MRM??

    Is it a legal requirement for these to have MRM labelled on the back? Its just Asdas own, dont have it! So i assume its not MRM? therefore, people who dont eat hot dogs, who dont like the idea of MRM, can then have this brand? Which is cheaper by around 4p, than the American hot dogs anyway... Just a question that ive never asked

    MRM - Mechanically retrieved meat

    MRM = Mechanically Recovered Meat

    Yes, there is a legal requirement.

    Because all other hot dogs ARE MRM(that i no of). which is all the chicken carcas, put into a machine thing and out comes a puree type substance, and then put into hot dogs. you really think i would buy hot dogs, that include this? its disgusting.

    I thought it was MSM, mechanically seperated meat ?

    yuck feel sick now.

    either way, its not labelled. Watching Jamies thingy before, on CH4, it was called MRM, and american hotdogs have MRM labelled.

    Best of looking on the back of the label, it would say (Chicken 50% (MRM) or something along those lines

    there is no legal requirement to name MRM , MRM paste and flavouring is used i so much MORE than just hot dogs, alot of meat related pies and also sausages. what makes me laugh is if they didnt bring this to light no one would really care. people are so squeemish now its a joke...if its safe who cares? people cant even find food in poorer countries and here is us moaning...lol

    Wow, im glad i don't eat hot dogs.

    I dont believe they eat the bones do they?

    Why do u think Kentucky Fried Chicken is refered to more as KFC now?

    The less u pay the more **** is in your food is prob a safe assumption.. the reason u shud worry about eatin this kinda **** is the risk of Bowl and other cancers.. among other things..

    it's wrong what food manufacturers do, but theyre not breaking the law. Most smells that entice you to food are created in a lab and then added..

    try reading something liek fast food nation, should open your eyes

    not sure if they ate them but they do use every part of the animal and anyway nobody has ever died from eating a hotdog made from chicken carcass. good on them.

    (waits for the leftie tree huggers to google hotdog deaths and post result from 1976)

    Feel free, i feel my question was answered - which was the only reason i made the topic. No wonder u got 6,700+ posts commenting things such as that

    Government - Reduce Waste

    +

    Government - Don't use all the animal

    =

    Doesn't add up. Would you and did you eat it before you knew about MRM? If so stop complaining. It's edible food. There is a lot of stuff you wouldn't eat if you knew the specifics.

    [COLOR="Red"]The colorings come in two forms, cochineal extract or carmine. Both are derived from female cochineal beetles, which are raised in Peru, the Canary Islands, and elsewhere. They provide a pink, red, or purple color to foods ranging from ice cream and yogurt to fruit drinks and the aperitif Campari, as well as to pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. [/COLOR]
