Geez, it's so hard to trust the food industry. Many companies just keep raising the bar on how low they will stoop to save a buck - not concerned about the end consumer's health and well-being. Meat glue, turkey in beef - what the heck else will they think of. You've heard of turducken (stuffing a turkey with a duck)...perhaps they should call this abomination burky! Thank goodness this company got caught...but how many don't. Get to know who you purchase your food from. Buy from the local amish butcher store if you have one. We are lucky as we have Hefling's Amish Farm Market her in the Mt. Clemens area and Peacock's Poultry Farm in the Troy area. Both reputible source for many food products. Well, read on and get mad!
Hidden sources of gluten can be found in many places. We must continue to be vigilant and cautious about our foods. Take notice of this recent recall issued by the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS).
Doctors, Practitioners, RD's, post this information for all to see. Feel free to forward this note.
