Well, I was wondering why I tasted such a horrible chemical aftertaste and did some research. First off, my friend was unable to detect any chemical taste. I came across a meat-binding enzyme called Transglutaminase or "meat glue." This enzyme allows scraps of meats to be glued together. This enzyme is usually undetectable by taste but some people can taste this horrible chemical taste. I am one of these tasters, apparently.
This enzyme has not been deemed unsafe, however, the bacteria count in these "put back together cuts of beef and seafood" is extremely higher than real cuts of meat.
I believe that I was given this refund so I would not complain or research further. I know they will sell those cuts of meat to someone else. I have no doubt that they will get the same nutritional value from eating this meat. But, who wants these chemicals and who wants non-choice cuts of beef reattached and sold as prime-choice cuts of beef?
Please avoid eating Direct USA Foods' meat if you would like to avoid eating "meat glue."
