    Superglue Advocated for Preventing Fecal Leakage in Poultry

Food Chemical News April 24, 1995, p. 12: "Robert Cook, a consultant from
Alexandria, VA, complained that processes exist that would allow the
industry to improve the safety of its products, but that the regulatory
agencies, governed by laws written generations ago, have not yet approved
them. As an example, he talked about using Superglue to seal the vents on
poultry before slaughter to prevent the birds from reflexively excreting
fecal material at the time of death...."

Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, Ontario, CA, May 16, 1995: Jim Munn, president
of Pacer Technology, Rancho Cucamonga, CA has been trying since 1992 to get
government agencies to approve his company's superglue product "Rectite"
for use in gluing shut the rectal cavities of turkeys and chickens to
prevent fecal matter from contaminating meat and cut down on the number of
birds required to be re-processed and re-inspected.

[Talk about a growth industry!  Remember, when you make your fist million
 on the Rectite market, you heard about it on Fun_People first.  Golly...
 I wonder if hospitals will start using Rectite, too...  -psl]
