Here's an old post I made on the subject,
Just a small "appetizer":
Water buffalo, donkey and goat found in South African meat products.
Mmmmm, yummy! Since it's increasingly obvious that in the ever-continuing, benign quest to provide everybody in the civilized Western world with
quality meat products, producers will have to make do with whatever kind of dead animal they can find, and the days where the kind of meat stated on the package really meant anything are numbered. Yeah, Joe Sixpack. Thought that your minimum wages REALLY bought you wholesome 100% pure All-American (or proudly British, whatever) beef patties? Well, guess what idiot, they don't!
From now on, it could be just anything (formerly) walking on two or four (or more) legs or even stuff with no legs at all that ends up in your plate (or between two the greasy buns that you gobble down, whatever).
This is not necessarily a Bad Thing however, as you might get the chance to savor EXOTIC and GOURMET meat from all around the world! Who needs Kobe Beef and Angus steaks à la carte when you could instead have roadkill and poached Water Buffalo, Donkey, Horse, Jackal, Zebra, Antelope, Gazelle, Kangaroo, Wildebeest, Python, Baboon, Chimpanzee, Elephant, Dog, Cat, Rat, etc. all for the same, old, low price of processed "beef" patties?
So, what you'd rather have (not an exhaustive poll, unfortunately).
