Say No to Plumping!

Groups seek label changes for injected chickens

If you buy chicken meat in the store, as I still do  (Remember the chickens as meat are a work in progress for me, eggs first.)  you might notice that most of it is “plumped” or injected with broth, which is bad because it increases the amount of sodium and it increases the weight which increases price.  Currently the practice of “plumping” is viewed as “natural” and plumped meats can be labeled “100% natural” when it most obviously is not.  Groups are trying to change the labeling rules to exclude plumping from “100% natural meat”.  You can support such groups by joining the Face Book group “Say No To Plumping” and by signing this petition:  Say No To Plumping .
