Is 'Tuna Scrape' The New 'Pink Slime'??

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFoodHealth

It seems that ever since the whole "pink slime" controversy, the general public has been more aware of what they eat.

Now consumers are looking at a product called "tuna scrape." It's similar to pink slime in that it's the bits of meat scraped off of the bones.

A recent salmonella outbreak that was linked to tuna scrape has people asking whether this product is fit for human consumption or not.

Seeing as how it's a common ingredient in some kinds of sushi, raw tuna scrape could pose a serious health risk.

Some food experts don't think there's enough research on tuna scrape to declare it safe. Others think it's so different from pink slime that it's not a fair comparison.

Tuna scrape, like pink slime, is pulled from the bones after all the meat has been taken. But pink slime goes through several other steps of processing.

It is cooked, spun in a centrifuge and then sprayed with ammonia.

Gross.

At least tuna scrape isn't treated like that but still, it's eaten raw and it's the leftovers that were stuck to the bones.

If you'd ask us, we'd say, "Hold the tuna scrape, please."

In Japan, Kiyoshi Kimura, president of Sushi-Zanmai, a Japanese sushi chain, bought a 593-pound bluefin tuna.

It broke the record for most expensive fish ever sold, with the previous record only being $416,000.

Bluefin tuna are government controlled when it comes to how many can be caught each year and this one was particularly huge so that's why the price was so high.

On his reason for spending so much for a single fish, Kimura said:

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), various forms of heart disease affect approximately seventy million Americans. Any heart-healthy diet should include fish, which contains omega-3 fatty acids that may lower your risk for heart disease. Healthy fish include salmon, tuna, and mackerel. You can also get omega-3s from walnuts, chia seeds, and flaxseeds. Try to eat foods that are rich in soluble fiber. Such foods include oats, kidney beans, peas, apples, oranges, and carrots.

The Tuna Industry's Dirty Little Secret?

Filed under: Sad SadFish

Greenpeace has just released a new campaign to inform consumers about the negative side of the canned tuna industry.

The organization hired Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Mark Fiore to work on the viral video and get their message across.

According to the Greenpeace website:

Here's the issue: catching tuna in a manner that keeps the price hovering around $1-$2 per can is difficult. It's a challenging process for a number of reasons, not least of which is that most species of tuna are constantly on the move across the vastness of the open ocean. Chasing these schools around is a time- and resource-intensive process – especially with oil prices on the perpetual upswing – but the tuna industry has found a way to cut some pretty significant corners. Unfortunately, this has led to any number of nasty consequences, and those smiling bumblebees and luxuriating mermaids on the tuna cans at your neighborhood grocery store have done a great job covering them up… until now.
