Raw Chicken or Just the Way they are raised?
Tue, 09/20/05 7:01 AM
I wonder if it is just me or has anyone else come upon this? I have ordered chicken at a number of places, some fast food and some just local restaurants, and found that the chicken seems a tad too pink in the middle. Not bloody, but too pink for my taste. After sending it back and getting back pretty much the same looking pinkness, I have been informed that it is the way the poultry industry is harvesting younger birds. I live in an area that raises and processes turkeys, and have not found a similiar problems with those birds. Has anyone else noticed the change in the color of chicken meat, and also there seems to be much more fat on the birds?
