These days everyone tells you everything is bad for you. Every kind of food for you is bad because it will be bad for your health, make your phallus and surrounding area shrink of you’re a guy; or like in today’s case, it can cause food poisoning as well!
If you’re like me; then you LOVE sushi, so today’s news should be a bit of a tragedy. Apparently; sushi is now dangerous to eat, and I don’t mean the rotten sushi either. So many of you may have heard of how McDonald’s in the states was under fire last year for “ammonia washing” their beef products. Apparently the same thing is done for fish. The spicy tuna roll that you’re snacking on right now? Yep, there’s a possibility that delicious roll has been reconstructed into that yummy mash that you’re chewing on right now.
You may think, “So what? It’s still food right? Everything is processed now anyways”. True dat bro, the only problem: two ugly strains of salmonella are associated with this form of food processing. When fish is filleted, there is still leftover meat left on the skeleton of the fish. To you and me, that is disposable meat. To the big corporations, that is money in their eyes. India catches and processes alot of fish these days. Not only is the so called “tuna scrape” just tuna, it is a combination of several different fish meats chopped and mashed together, then frozen and sold in giant blocks to restaurants all around the world. In the United States 80% of all domestically sold seafood is imported. Recently there have been 250 cases and a possible 6000 undiagnosed cases of food poisoning in the states with patients contacting Salmonella. What relates them all? 80% of the cases all claimed to have eaten spicy tuna rolls that contain the tuna scrape fish meat bought from grocery stores and restaurants.
Some food for thought: maybe next time you go out for sushi, stay on the safe side and order nigiri sushi or sashimi. Something that’s solid that you can actually see with your own eyes.
