Several Air Gun pellet found in Kaufland meat (Pheasant)

18 posts in this topic

Hi Guys!

Today I bought Pheasant (Fasan) meat from Kaufland. While cooking,I found several (More than 7) air gun iron pellet in the meat.


I want to know, is it normal for such kind of meat? It could be a health-hazard if someone accidently eat some iron pellet. It is a strange experience, what should I do? Should I make objection to Kaufland?

I went to Kaufland to make objection, but they know this and it often happen with this bird meat. I did not know this that's why was panicing.

Bimohan,

 

Those are shotgun pellets, not air gun pellets.

If you check the packaging there will be a warning.   Has lead shot been phased out?

You are right, that was written but I could not understand for lack of language knowledge. Now it is all clear.

I can do you one better. We were in a coastal town in Portugal some 20 years ago (sorry Mike Melga). My wife tucked into her caldeirada (fish stew) and pulled a 2 inch fishhook (luckily without barb) out of her mouth. When we took the server to task she said, "Well, you know the fish is fresh."

Interesting that the UK toffs are sell their bag to the EU...

 

They also import about 27 million intensively raised chicks and live birds from the EU annually,  fatten them up and release them to be shot.    More than 60 percent do not live long enough to get to the being-shot stage.  Far more are shot than can be sold, nearly half are given to game dealers free of charge, some are even paid to take them away.  Many are just simply incinerated.   Game keepers kill lots of endangered raptors.

Memories of fresh  pheasant- cleaned by Mum, and then sibling and I spitting out pellets! Never eaten pheasant or partridge since then!

They are easy to spot.  Entry hole looks like a bruise,  you just need to cut this open to find the pellet.  They are changing over to iron rather than lead.  Lead kills bird quicker and is gentler on the teeth if you happen to crunch one.  Lead poisoning of the environment and of you is a bit of a bummer.
