Woman Shares A Photo Of Chicken Breast Which Was 'Spaghettified'

Alesia Cooper, a mother residing in Irving, Texas, posted a picture of chicken breasts she purchased. To her surprise, when she began preparing dinner, the chicken shredded into strands resembling spaghetti. She sought advice, hoping someone could shed light on what might have gone wrong. 

“I been debating on posting this but since I had to see it so do yall,” she wrote under the photo she posted online on March 21.

“I was cooking my kids dinner a couple of weeks ago and was cleaning my meat like I normally do and when I went back to start cooking it turned into this (SIC).” Cooper explained.

Indicating that the meat was purchased from the budget supermarket Aldi, Cooper added, "lol I think it's that fake meat, but I'm not sure anyway... I haven't made chicken off the bone since."

As anticipated, people commented on the photo, expressing their concerns and sharing their theories.

“That’s lab grown chicken, it’s a new way they make chicken because of the last few years with the bird flu and resource shortages they didn’t have produce so last year they announced that they found a way to make chicken in a lab and that’s what’s in stores now,” one person wrote.

“Fake i don’t buy it anymore,” another commented.

“It’s not lab-grown meat or 3D printed meat. It comes from real chickens. The problem is when greedy chicken producers force-feed their chickens growth hormones so they grow way too fast,” someone else added.

According to Wall Street reports, chicken breasts take on this appearance, resembling spaghetti, when breeders feed chickens chemicals to promote rapid growth and size.

Dr. Massimiliano Petracci, a professor of agriculture and food science at the University of Bologna in Italy, stated, "There is evidence linking these irregularities to fast-growing birds."

In the past, it would take chickens 112 days to reach a market weight of 2.5 pounds. However, in recent years, chickens reach an average market weight of 5.03 pounds in just 47 days.

“If people keep eating more and more chicken, chickens will probably have to get even bigger…We’ll have to increase the proportion of breast meat in each bird, too.” said Dr. Michael Lilburn, a professor at Ohio State University’s Poultry Research Center.

“What people don’t realize is that it’s consumer demand that’s forcing the industry to adjust,” Lilburn said of the increased consumption of various chicken products such as chicken nuggets, wings, and sandwiches.

“It’s a deceivingly small but vocal minority that are raising a lot of legitimate questions. The bulk of the U.S. population still doesn’t care where their food comes from, as long as its cheap,” Liburn added.

It's essential that we pay attention to what we consume for the sake of both our own health and that of our children.
