Just when I thought LFTB (Lean Finely Textured Beef) was out of my life… Here it comes, popping back in. But this time it’s not to due to some negative press.. No it’s much different. I was delighted when I received our American Association of Meat Processors monthly newsletter and the Executive Secretary of our Association had decided to write an article regarding the issue. Now for those of you who are over it, I am not meaning to beat a dead horse here. This article brings up many more issues besides just LFTB so I encourage you to please give it a read. With an ever growing population and the United States as the main food producer and a shortage of cattle starting to become a reality, now we take LFTB out of production…?? With cutting our food supply, how are we ever going to feed all these people?
Thank you so much to the American Association of Meat Processors for giving me permission to post this article and share it with y’all. It’s not usual that we get to circulate our member newsletter..
