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 thatseemingly mercifullyis 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 pizzlewhich is meant to be labeled as inedible beef not fit for human consumptionon the shelves for unsuspecting customers. As KXAN reports, MT Supermarket deliberately altered the labels...
The Texas Attorney Generals 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.

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.

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. 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."

Hey, we’ve got REAL Chinese markets here in LA. No prob!
The Koreans feed the pizzle to the dogs and cats first and then as they say ..."Soup's On!"
Tonight on the yummy channel, Iron Chef Bobby Flay and the ghost of Julia Child will cook Pizzle and Rocky Mountain Oysters for a family of four.
