    there are so many more examples - I know that the websites aren't particularly reliable sources but there is an overwhelming number of articles. Sorry, couldn't find the original source Jamie Oliver used. The point is, the part of the meat they used was considered 'unfit for human consumption' so they washed it with ammonium hydroxide which is poisonous for humans and claimed it was somehow a different product? Thankfully they've stopped putting this in their burgers.
    The FDA said this

    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classified it as a Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) substance in 1974, saying that "concentrations of ammonia and ammonium compounds normally present in food do not suggest a health risk; ammonia and ammonium ions are recognized to be integral components of normal metabolic processes."
    Jamie Oliver is not a scientist. He is a moron.

    Pretty irrelevant considering A) this is concerning food produced after 1974 and B) artificial levels of ammonia added through chemical processes to the food, rather than that found naturally in food as is described in the quote from the FDA.

    No because meat isn't bad for you when eaten in moderation, and red meat can be a good source of iron
