Maybe you can give us the real story on it?

Sure. Transglutaminase (meat glue) is an all natural enzyme found in almost all plants and animals that bond protiens. Your body is full of it and could not live without it. Most of us eat it all the time (deli meat, hot dogs, sausage, chicken nuggets, and in many normal vegetables and plants too). There is absolutely nothing unsafe about using meat glue. The initial outcry was that stores and restaurants were taking scraps and making filet mignon out of it. Thier thought was that gluing the outside of one scrap to the inside of another contaminated the inside of the meat. If this were the case, it would be an accurate statement. However, this is not what it's used for and it's in hundreds of perfectly safe foods you and I eat every day. It is also used for evil (mc rib, chicken mc nuggets come to mind) but it's very common.
