New England Journal of Medicine: "Chicken" Nuggets A Misnomer

In a sample of two nuggets bought from national chains, neither nugget had chicken meat as the predominant ingredient. This is problematic, as chicken white meat is recommended to patients as a highly efficient source of protein, and patients who order faux-gets thinking they're following their physicians' advice are getting something very different than they and their physicians expect. A beautiful photo at io9 puts an entertaining spin on this consumer fraud by suggesting the faux "food" is the product of massive clone factories.
