A North Austin Supermarket Has Forced Us To Learn What "Pizzle" Is
Texas Monthly ^ | Mon June 16, 2014 2:58 pm | by Dan Solomon

It may not have occurred to you that when you give your dog a chew treat, you may well be giving the pooch a product that may well be made out of...

You may also be unaware that..., as a meat product, has a name that—seemingly mercifully—is not ..., but which is "pizzle," perhaps the only word gross enough for the thing that it describes.

But all of this is presumably less gross than the fact that a North Austin supermarket allegedly put pizzle—which is meant to be labeled as inedible beef not fit for human consumption—on the shelves for unsuspecting customers. As KXAN reports, MT Supermarket deliberately altered the labels...

The Texas Attorney General’s Office filed the suit that names the North Lamar location of MT Supermarket where employees sold “non-inspected, adulterated and misbranded beef pizzle as human food.”

The suit alleges a manager and employees at the supermarket took the pizzle from boxes “labeled inedible beef, not intended for use as human food and repackaged the pizzle in consumer size packages, then labeled the pizzle as human food.”

The suit goes on to say the defendants labeled the packages to indicate the pizzle was inspected and from a registered source...

In my perpetual effort to enrich my store of knowledge, I like to add a new factoid (or two) each day.

In this regard, I find pings such as this an invaluable resource, especially when combined with the cornucopia of knowledge whose bounty manifests itself as "Wikipedia."

Behold:

"Human consumption See also: Deer penis, tiger penis and tiger penis soup

In addition to being used as a dog treat, pizzles are also eaten by humans for their health benefits such as being low in cholesterol and high in protein, hormones, vitamins and minerals such as calcium and magnesium.[2] Pizzles for human consumption are prepared either by freezing or by drying. Scottish deer pizzles are thought to boost stamina and were used by Chinese athletes at the 2008 Summer Olympics.[2][6] Pizzles can be served in soup, and if they have been dried they can be turned into a paste. Pizzles may also be mixed with alcoholic beverages or simply thawed (if frozen) and eaten.[2] In Jamaica, bull pizzles are referred to as "cow cods" and are eaten as cow cod soup. Like many pizzle-based foods, cow cod soup is claimed to be a male aphrodisiac."

This use of the "wonder meat" is over and above its use as an ingredient in glue.

It's indirect or second hand consumption.

The Koreans feed the pizzle to the dogs and cats first and then as they say ..."Soup's On!"

I cut meat for close to 30 years,starting in 1975 and I have never heard this term. Why would inedible meat be packed in a box? It all went in the barrel to be picked up once a week by a rendering company.

I’ve known what a pizzle is for years when I read about how colonial India police used to beat people with them for riot control. I’ve also seen walking canes made of them. Dried of course.

Someone used to steal the G from the Black Angus Resaurant sign so eventually they painted it on the wall.

Not sure what’s in the Vienna sausages, but when I’ve run out of regular baits, I’ve caught some nice salt water rock fish with pieces of them.

And I don’t fish....but I do love fish.
