No matter which poultry is bought from the counter at large-scale stores, packed in trays or frozen, it can be filled with a mixture of water and chemical preservatives. Thanks to this treatment, chickens and turkeys are growing quite large, and the customer is wrongly convinced that he is buying good quality animal meat.
Poultry water is most often injected at bird slaughter sites (Asia and Africa), because in Europe or America, doing such a thing on the spot, in the back of the store, would be too risky. Unfortunately, this makes it difficult to detect the scams.
Artificially increasing the weight of meat is an ordinary deception and should be punished with the utmost severity. Unfortunately, corporations camouflage their scams so quickly that the end is not in sight. So, what to do? Buy meat and cold meats in small stores that get their supply from an assortment of local butchers.
