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?

    For the record, I voted "NO". I just don't know what to call it when explaining a dish that has it in it.

    I voted no because it just said bacon without a qualifier. Not if we added a qualifier such as venison bacon, boar bacon then I could vote yes, but not in this poll!!!

    Thats kinda what im sayin. If i told you we're gonna have bacon and eggs and served Boar bacon or anything but traditional bacon you would ask questions like "what kind of friggin bacon are you serving us today Trav?????". Sooooooooooo anything but traditional swine fatback isnt bacon in my book.

    But you still got me on the boar pork thing

    Some of you may think its funny now, but just wait until your wife calls you up, and asks you to pick up a rack of turkey babybacks on your way home, or you go over to your sisters house for brisket, and when you get there, find out its made from corn gluten, fermented soy and sprouted grain. Its a very slippery slope we are being pressured into.
