We buy all of our meat at the local meat market fresh cut so we should be avoiding most of this. We bought all of the children gift certificates from there for x-mas. They couldn't believe the difference in the flavor of the meat.

This is getting disgusting. Everything we eat seems to be getting tampered with. I figured most chicken was safe, until I started reading the labels and found all this added stuff. I do so much label reading now, my shopping trips are getting longer and longer just to find out what is safe to eat for us older folks with lots of health issues.

Any meat, chicken or otherwise, that is prepackaged with a name brand, will likely have these injections. Meat that you buy from your local store, cut and packaged there, is probably safe. However, read the label. Meats bought from the deli counter will also be injected, and of course, ANY packaged lunch meats are. The added water is to make the package heavier, so they make more profit. They get you coming and going.
