Default Food Safety -- what is this black stuff?

Help! So, I just finished cooking some ribs, and when I cut into them, I found these little streaks and spots of black. I've never seen it before. Does anyone know what this is? Is it safe to eat?

Could be some blood veins too. If it smelled good before and after cooking I would eat it.

Did you purchase them from a Rocky Balboa wannabe? Bruises are my best guess also.

Oh gawd, it's the dreaded Black Pork of Death, just touching it has doomed you to a horrible painful death...or...


Looks like cooked blood to me, more than likely, blood did not get drained from the carcass at slaughter, and it coagulated along that area. Once cooked, it turned blackish, sort of like Black pudding/blood sausage

That pig was probably hit with a cattle prod in the ribs close to the time of his demise. they cause deep tissue bruising.

+1 on the bruises, that is mild compared to a huge abscess that I cut into once on a beef primal. Apparently it was missed at the packing house. Remembering gives me the willies... Made me vegetarian for a day or two.

And before anyone corrects me that it would be a Intercostal Hematoma instead of a Subdural Hematoma.....I know, but I did not want to confuse it with HomeTrucking's bruise he got falling out of his boat.

I think this ecchymosis which is similar to bruising but not caused by 'trauma'. It is blood leaking out of small blood vessels brought on by preslaughter stress.

As long as it smelt fine prior to cooking it should have no impact on eating!
