UK: Deep Pectoral Myopathy

6 March, 2020

Various photos posted on social media show poultry meat tainted with a putrid, green stain in poultry meat bought from different supermarkets (Tesco, Sainsbury's, Asda and Morrisons). It is unclear whether the birds all come from the same supplier and supermarkets have now opened an investigation into the cause of this pathology.
Deep pectoral myopathy (DPM) is a degenerative muscle disease of poultry commonly referred to as green muscle disease. Green muscle disease is a hidden problem in today’s large broiler chickens that is not detected until these birds are deboned at the processing plant.
