A worker at a Perdue chicken processing plant had mostly kind things to say about where America’s poultry came from. But there’s one food he’ll never eat again: chicken nuggets. 

In a Reddit Ask Me Anything, the man shared why he doesn’t eat the food. 

[NOTE: While the man’s identity was verified by Reddit moderators, Business Insider can’t independently prove his veracity.]

“It’s the meat that can only be gotten by smashing, mashing, mixing, boiling, bleaching, etc the other unwanted parts of the chicken,” the man said. 

He also described what goes into the nuggets. 

“It’s all chicken. It’s just not all meat. Some of it’s skin, a few bones, fat, and whatever meat might still be attached to any of the previous mentioned,” he said. 

He said his plant provides meat to grocery stores and restaurants.
