Mechanically Separated Meat

Mechanically separated meat also known as mechanically recovered/reclaimed meat, is a paste-like meat product produced by forcing beef, pork, turkey or chicken bones, with attached edible meat, under high pressure through a sieve or similar device to separate the bone from the edible meat tissue.

Mechanically separated meat has been used in certain meat and meat products since the late 1960s, particularly in hot dogs. This product can be contrasted with meat extracted by advanced meat recovery systems, a newer method that shaves the last traces of meat from bone.
