    Default If it clucks or gobbles, can it be called "bacon"????

    I think we need a new poll. I have seen several non-pork products referred to as "bacon". To me, bacon is made from pork. Not turkey, chicken, corn gluten, or tofu. (Beef however is a bit of a grey area). There have been national movements designed to protect certain consumable items from being "copied" such as Cheeses, Wines, Proscuttio, etc. Why can mechanically separated, chopped, formed and pressed poultry with non poultry artificial flavors added still be called "bacon"?

    Who agrees with me?

    If it burns, I can cook with it.

    I bet you'd be hard pressed to find chicken / turkey bellies on the commodities market anywhere.

    I agree. If we don't act now, we will soon hear about things like "turkey brisket" and "turkey baby backs". Lets put the pork back in bacon.
