High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - September 26, 1974, High Point, North Carolina 10b High Point Kate Prisc thursday september 26, 1971 us a tosses the fat into the fire by George Kentera women a news service a Detroit news Washington was a the agriculture department a Usdan has a lot of Consumers in a Stew because it wants to make a slight change in its definition of the word indignant letters from meat buyers accuse the department of a willingness not Only to deceive the shopper but to promote the spread of cancer and the incidence of heart disease in the United states. Representatives of meat processors led by the american meat Institute support the department s proposal asserting a among other things a that it would result in lower prices for the most affected products hamburger and cooked sausages. The department proposes a As outlined in the Federal Register of March 21 a is to allow the use of somewhat More fatty trimmings than before in the production of hamburger and cooked sausages without increasing the allowable 30 per cent volume of fat in either of them. But Many Consumers stirred by a rather misleading associated press Story of March 23, got the impression that their hamburgers and hot dogs would contain More fat in the future under the proposal and they began firing off letters to the department. In reply they received a Standard letter from the department s animal and Plant health inspection service. Present . Law requires that trimmings used in meat products with limits on fat Content should contain no material that comprised less than 12 per cent lean meat. On that Point the letter said a the main change of this regulation if implemented would be to permit raw meat materials with less than 12 per cent lean to be considered As a meat in the preparation of certain products. Since observable lean must be present it would permit More flexibility in the use of trimmings that contain about 12 per cent lean and some of which might have less than 12 per cent the letter after noting that fears of increased fat Content in hot dogs and Ham Burger were based on a inadequate information about the matter a said the departments proposal would increase supplies alleviate the problems of ingredient shortages and still require processors to comply with limitations on maximum fat Content. Meat processors agreed. Of the 43 that wrote the department about its proposal All but one supported it. The following letter from Joe Ryland president of the Kentucky meat processors Assn., was typical a since the regulations strictly enforce fat limitation in the finished product it has never made sense to attempt to control fat lean ration of raw materials by visible observation. The new proposal will eliminate waste of valuable meat raw materials save inspection time and will ultimately Benefit the consumer since the Quality and nutritive value of the finished product will not be changed in any the March 23 a Story that set off Manv of the Consumers began a the agricultural department wants to put More fatty parts of animals including hog jowls and cattle brisket into the consumer food Chain by letting processors use More such trimmings in hamburger and hot dogs. A proposal announced wednesday would let manufacturers use More of the fatty trimmings from cattle and hog carcasses so Long As they include a visible lean streaks or bits of red that got the Consumers going. A suet is now being sold for the Birds. Lets keep it that Way wrote a Schenectady . Woman. A Are you trying to kill off More of the population a asked a Man from Niagara Falls after calling attention to news reports linking animal fats to some cancers. A what Are you trying to do kill All of us by heart attack a asked a californian. Even More incensed was David j. Sherk of Huntsville Ala. After observing that one of the worlds gravest problems was a shortage of food particularly protein he applauded the agricultural department for finding a solution. A what better solution could there be a he asked a than to make meat products so unpalatable so adulterated that even the most a discriminating consumer is repelled by them a but some critics did not base their opposition on an erroneous Assumption that the fat Content of hamburger and hot dogs was to be increased. The american dietetic Assn. Wrote from Chicago that the use of less lean trimmings whatever the final fat Content of the finished product would lower the food value because a the value of meat is in its protein and amino acid Content which is in the lean portion. Argued consumer a Union a we believe that the proposed Rule revising the interpretation of the term a meat is unnecessary and May result in significant consumer consumer a Union said trimmings of less than 12 per cent lean meat Are now called edible fat on the labels of finished products but that under the new proposal a processor could use less than 12 per cent lean and still not have to identify part of his product As edible fat. The processor the organization said could also use trimmings with the a slightest amount of visible lean and continue to use the All meat term Quot for his product.

Because the trimmings which currently cannot be called meat Are nevertheless utilized this proposal will not overcome any obstacle which is unnecessarily restricting the supplies of meat in this country a because no such obstacle exists. Although we Are fully cognizant that the proposed change would not allow the processed meat products to be any fatties a a misconception that has led to some consumer objections to this proposal a we feel strongly that the proposal would serve Only to deceive the the deadline for Public comment on the proposal has now passed. The Only thing Lett is for the decision to be made. In making it the agriculture department is sure to make at least somebody angry which is typical of Washington decisions.
