California State Senator Ted Lieu wrote a letter asking the USDA to investigate the use of meat glue in the beef and restaurant industry. The American Meat Institute’s Janet Riley says her organization called Lieu’s office to ask him to stop using the term “meat glue.”
Memo to Janet Riley: the only way to stop a shady meat industry practice from getting a name you don’t like is to not allow the practice to become widespread in the first place. Because once that practice gets exposed there will invariably be a name tacked onto it that you don’t like—and all the pestering phone calls in the world will never make that name go away. Link.
