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.

Thanks for debunking the stories I have been given regarding this product.
