    Tara, always new tricks. Remember the colored lights they had to get rid of years ago. Reminds me of why I don't buy farm raised salmon. It's dyed. Maybe I should search to see if any rf people here buy that stuff.

    They dont have to let you know that the meat is packaged with that.
    That is what some of the uproar is about.

    pretty soon, we'll muck up the planet well enough that all our meat will need to be cooked 'til charred and all our veggies will need to be steamed for at least 10 minutes.
    Won't that be nice?

    Farmed salmon isn't dyed in the sense that anyone actually dyes the meat. The feed used in raising these fish causes the color. At any rate, farmed salmon is very high in such things as mercury.

    Sorry Michael but it says right on the package color added.
    You have it backwards. the diet in the wild causes the color.

    It's not a government boo-boo... the government is doing exactly what its corporate masters are instructing it to do.

    For years the Perdue Chicken ADs raved about feeding the chickens Marigold petals to get that "Healthy Yellow Color", compared to the 'pasty-white' of those "Arkansas Birds" (Tyson). Foster Farms in CA makes a big deal out of the "Local" chickens they sell instead of those "Arkansas Birds"(again Tyson) that have to ride across the deserts to get to California.

    Frankly, I try not to buy bright red beef, a nice maroon with a little rainbow tinge indicates its a little aged to me...which I like. I also don't buy yellowish/orange chicken. My free range chikens are almost pink and boy are they yummy.

    Shame on the food processors for pulling these shams. Put out the best product and be done with it..
