    New Chicken Scandal : supplier fiddles dates. 29th Sep 17 at 4:54 AM
    Go read this article about a chicken supplier to some top supermarkets changing dates among other things.

    You may never look at supermarket chicken in the same way again!

    I wonder whether this scandal makes it difficult for M&S to pretend their food is anything special...

    I only buy chicken form Morrisons, now, as they declared that their meat was not produced the halal way, though New Zealand lamb was. This is nothing to do with religion, but unnecessary cruelty (beyond that of normal slaughter). Other supermarkets were coy, refusing to comment, saying there was a mixture of origins and one even saying it was ok as te animals were prayed over. (I had risked Aldi until a box of halal turkey was photographed on an aisle of a store; reply being most is not halal).


    The picking up of food from floors is an old tradition in manufacture. At least the chicken will be cooked, but some years ago, school friends had summer jobs in a big name bakery's factory, making battenburg cakes.


    The instructions were to pick up any marzipan offcuts from the floor and place them in machines that mixed them up to be reused as one would remix and roll pastry offcuts at home.
