Potted meat food product

A Potted meat food product or potted meat is cooked, canned meat, often creamed, minced, or chipped (as in Chipped beef). Various meats such as beef, pork, chicken and turkey are used. It is produced internationally. Its long shelf life and precooking make it suitable for emergency food supplies, and for military and camping uses. Large amounts were sent as "care packages" to the U.S. military in IraqFact|date=November 2007.


Canned meats such as Spam have a mixed reputation on account of the taste, texture, ingredients, preparation and nutrition. For example, mechanically separated chicken or "mechanically separated poultry" is a paste-like product made by forcing crushed bone and tissue through a sieve to separate bone from tissue. Mechanically separated poultry has been used in poultry products since 1969 after the National Academy of Sciences found it safe for use. On November 3, 1995, the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) published a final rule in the Federal Register (see 60 FR 55962) on mechanically separated poultry, stating that it was safe to use without restrictions. [cite web |url=http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getpage.cgi?dbname=1995_register&position=all&page=55962 |title=9 CFR Part 318, "et al"; Poultry Products Produced by Mechanical Separation and Products In Which Such Poultry Products Are Used; Final Rule |publisher=U.S. Department of Agriculture |format=PDF |accessdate = 2007-11-25] However, it must be labeled as "mechanically separated chicken or turkey" in the ingredient statement. The final rule became effective on November 4, 1996.
