Image from Salon article on "mechanically separated chicken"
Here's fact-checking verification from the Francis Lam article that the viral image is indeed chicken product:
Since the photo is at least a few years old, uncredited and unlabeled, and since we kind of couldn't believe that chicken could be made to look like a mutant cone of strawberry soft-serve, we spoke to David Radford, director of sales and marketing of BFD Corp., which makes advanced meat recovery machines, who confirmed that yes, that is an accurate depiction of what mechanically separated chicken looks like.
That's raw Chicken McNuggets, and IT LOOKS LIKES SOFT SERVE!!!! I'm vomiting. I'm vomiting on my keyboard right this minute.
