Sofia - Bulgarian customs stopped a 75-ton shipment of beef meat from Ireland that may have been frozen since 1984, local media reported on Monday.

The meat was sent for testing after officials at the Kulata border pass with Greece noticed that the meat had a bluish colour. Among the papers with the shipment was a 22-year-old health certificate.

Experts were to be called in to determine whether the meat, en route to Plovidiv, was really as old, but it was immediately clear that it was not suitable for consumption. The reports did not say where the frozen meat was previously stored. -

If it is vaccum sealed and frozen the whole time it will still be good. I wouldn't want to eat it, but it could be better than some of the stuff put in hotdogs.

Just wondering, did they use those vacuum sealed bags 22 years ago?

To keep fish and game fresher in the freezer we sometimes freeze it in a bucket of water.

You are correct, ANYTHING is better than a hotdog. :wink:

SH, what is your argument on vacuum sealed meat? Does a little aging make it as good as dry aged beef?

You guys can keep your hot dogs! I'm gonna stick with good beef steak and my own Hereford 1/3lb preformed hamburgers on the George Foreman grill! IMHO, being a bachelor is no excuse for hot dogs! :p :p :p

Gee, why didn't they pack it in carbon monoxide? It would still look bright red and tasty! They would have never caught it! :lol: :lol: :lol: :wink:

When meat is frozen and no oxygen is present it will not spoil. When you age meat (wet or dry) it is not frozen.

Did you want to buy it Andy? Maybe we could wait a few more decades and serve it with an equally aged Cabernet Sauvignon, forget the school kids.
