  Mechanically separated meat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mechanically separated meat (MSM), also known as mechanically recovered meat (MRM) is a paste-like and batter-like meat product produced by forcing beef, pork or chicken bones, with attached edible meat, under high pressure through a sieve or similar device to separate the bone from the edible meat tissue.
Mechanically separated meat must be labeled as "mechanically separated beef or pork" in the ingredients statement.
Since bits of the spinal cord (the part most likely to be carrying BSE) often got mixed in with the rest of the meat, products using mechanically separated meat taken from the bodies of bovines were at higher risk for transmitting BSE to humans.

Beef is one of the principal meats used in European cuisine and cuisine of the Americas, and is important in Africa, East Asia, and Southeast Asia as well.
Beef is meat obtained from a bovine, usually a steer rather than a cow.
Other beef variety meats include the tongue, which is usually sliced for sandwiches; tripe from the stomach; various glands, referred to as sweetbreads; and the tender testicles of the bull commonly known as "beef balls", "calf fries", or "Rocky Mountain oysters." Beef is taboo in a number of religions, most notably Hinduism.

 Butchering Technology Could Transfer Disease To Humans
The American Meat Institute, representing the meat and poultry trade, said a ban is not needed because a 1997 federal rule requires that the spinal cord be removed from a carcass before it is butchered.
She said a ban on the machines would require butchers to remove the meat with knives - the traditional method for removing hard-to-locate meat in backbones and neck bones - which can be hazardous to workers.
Two of almost 60 tests the Agriculture Department conducted on mechanically separated meat were positive for such tissues, she said.

 EU introduces tighter meat labelling
For example, the directive restricts the definition of meat to the skeletal-attached muscles, which is a major development.
For other species, mechanically separated meat will have to be labelled separately and cannot form part of the meat content of any products in which it occurs.
Some Member States previously adopted their own definitions of meat for labelling purposes, but these definitions will now have to be harmonised at EU level.

“Mechanically separated meat is a paste produced by compressing carcasses, much like a used car is crushed into a dense block of metal,” he explains.
Mechanically separated beef—spinal cords and all—is still allowed here, though it’s hard to get a handle on how common it is.
The only way to guarantee that AMR meat is free of nervous-system tissue is to require meat processors to remove the entire spinal column (bones and all), not just the spinal cord, before sending cattle carcasses through their machinery (see “Making Meat Safe,”).

 Vol.13 - 4. Mechanically recovered meat (MRM)
If a butcher's knife was used to remove meat from a carcass, quite a lot of meat was left on the bone, especially on the ribs.
In the 1950s mechanical hand tools were developed to minimise wastage by recovering this meat and, by the early 1960s, automatic machines were being employed.
The definition of meat included 'the skin, rind, gristle and sinew in amounts naturally associated with the flesh', as well as the more commonly consumed organs such as heart, kidney, liver and also head meat.

One small jar of baby food, they found, made with mechanically separated chicken, delivers more fluoride than a 6-month-old child should receive in an entire day and, therefore, puts that child at risk of developing dental fluorosis.
One serving (71g) of luncheon meat containing mechanically separated chicken could provide as much as 0.45 mg of fluoride for a child.
Mechanically separated turkey meat had much lower fluoride levels because turkey bones are much harder to crush.

An internal APHIS memorandum allowing processed products from plants that used both young and old cattle noted that among the policy change's drawbacks was the lack of opportunity for public comment and an increased possibility that high-risk product, such as mechanically separated meat, could be imported into the United States due to mislabeling.
The Harvard Risk Assessment USDA commissioned in 2001 had clearly warned about potential contamination of cheek meat by brain tissue or other tissues during the slaughter process, yet USDA allowed it to be imported, even though in its own documents it had called cheek meat ineligible.
USDA says the report calling the meat ineligible had been superseded by a later memorandum, but OIG's audit showed that exactly the opposite had happened.

Note that "mechanically-separated" meat also means pureéd, except that they mechanically separate it by grinding it up with the bones still in it, and then they squoosh it through a screen door to filter out the larger bits of the bone and the bits too small to see become an important source of calcium.
Don't ask me where the "ash" content in dog food comes from.) They now have a technology where they can toss a quadrant of a chicken into an automated milling machine and it will scrape the bones clean, much like desert termites, without breaking the bones.
Meat produced that way is considered real meat by the government, whereas meat with ground-up bones is "mechanically separated".
