Is 'Tuna Scrape' the Next Pink Slime?

(Newser) – First came "pink slime," the processed beef too dubious even for McDonald's. Now "tuna scrape" might be poised to become the seafood equivalent. With a recent salmonella outbreak being linked to tuna scrape—ground backmeat scraped from the bones of the fish—people are asking whether this fish product is fit for human consumption, reports NPR. Raw meat, after all, is generally riskier than cooked, and ground products are at greater risk for contamination.

"I don't think enough research has been done on these products," one food safety expert says. But others say the comparison is unfair. While tuna scrape comes from the leftovers bones of fish, much the way pink slime comes from meat left over on a cow's carcass, the similarities end there, says Food Safety News.

My mom used to make something called Tuna Scrape back in the day. I was great. It smelled like rotting meat and looked even worse.

Ah, the good old days...

Your source says “Canned Thing.”

I think I agree.

Reminds me of the infamous “Hot Tuna Casserole w/ peas” we had in 1950s Jr High School cafeteria, on Fridays. Between that, Mac&Cheese Casserole, Salisbury Steak, Fish Sticks and Rubber Cheeseburgers during the other weekday lunches, no one ever died from it. I think. Mom packed my lunches after she found out the menus.

Pre-scrape tuna. Looks OK to me.

Worked as a guard in a penitentiary while I was in school, on Fridays the private contractor who supplied meals brought in something she called salmon casserole, the inmates swore was made from cat food. Judging by the smell, I think they were right to be suspicious.

Easy solution, just stop eating that crap after all, and you are fine.

If I ever eat meat or fish, I just go to the freaking farmer and buy it directly from him, he can tell me where it came from and I know what I get. Not the most practical solution for everybody, but it works for me.

Or grow, catch, raise your own meat supply.

Things like fuel, maintenance, taxes, license fees are making this more expensive and less cost-effective, year-to-year...even if you are trying to *protect* your food source for purity.
