Meat Glue In Many Restaurants
CHARLOTTE, N.C.-If you were disturbed by "Pink Slime," you'll want to know about "Meat Glue."
Chef Jess Cochran is with the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Charlotte.
Experts say meat glue is common in high end restaurants. You can find it in your own home in hot dogs, at fast food restaurants in things like chicken nuggets, and in deli sandwiches too. While some Uptown Charlotte visitors "think its disgusting," restaurants are required by law to give you what you order and usually that's part of the mix.
Uptown Charlotte resident Will Gilchrist said he isn't taking any chances, "I stopped eating a lot of processed meats because of the fact that so many products were going into them," he said.
Mecklenburg County Health officials say meat glue doesn't violate health codes. The North Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association has not yet returned our calls for comment.
