I found this.
it is (the meat) treated with ammonium hydroxide gas to kill bacteria.
Household ammonia is dilute ammonium hydroxide, which is also an ingredient of numerous other cleaning agents, including many window cleaning
formulas. In addition to use as an ingredient in cleansers with other cleansing ingredients, ammonium hydroxide in water is also sold as a cleaning
agent by itself, usually labelled as simply "ammonia". It may be sold plain, lemon-scented (and typically colored yellow), or pine-scented (green).
Commonly available ammonia that has had soap added to it is known as "Cloudy ammonia".
This is nuts. why is this being allowed. if it kills the bacteria what is it doing to me. After it kills the bacteria how do they get it out
The FDA says it is "generally safe" WTF!
