re: #4 funky chicken
I was being sarcastic in one regard. You can buy ground beef in at least three grades. Buy and pay for the 90% lean. I doubt it has anything added. All this means is that people are out of work and edible food will be discarded, raising the price of the rest.
Chemically treated? Virtually everything you buy in the store is chemically treated in some way, for your own good. This process is not illegal or harmful to people in any way.
