What’s that SMELL ?

Greetings Carnivores,

Today I want to talk about something that happens on a fairly regular basis.

If you discover a sealed package of meat (a fresh steak or maybe some Bologna … I won’t judge) that looks like it’s been blown up with air … don’t eat it. Through a natural order of things, microscopic critters (organisms) are always hard at work doing their level best to cop a free meal. During the breakdown of the food item, these bacterium are releasing by-products, one of which is gas.

Now, without getting too technical, the type of gas (Methane, Carbon Dioxide … the list goes on) is determined by the type of Bacteria and the food it’s consuming. The important point to remember here is: the food is in an advanced stage of spoiling.

Best before dates are really only a “Guideline” for you to consider ie: the item ‘should’ be consumed BEFORE the BB date, other wise it should be frozen for consumption later.

I’d LOVE to tell you about my canned Lobster story but … I digress.

Until next time Carnivores stay hungry and as usual, please follow my posts on Twitter @DougieDee and like and share them on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/carnivoreconfidential

Stay hungry Carnivores

  1. Yes, you’ve gone and done it now, whetting our appetites for the tale of the canned lobster. You dangle the meat but let us not eat. We want it, and we want it unabridged!

    Ps.. Thanks for the tip of smelly bologna.
