You're buying processed chicken bits and you're upset about the kind
of bits that went into it? What next, you'll stop buying sausage
because it contains gristle?

I've seen that too and quit buying them. I'm afraid to ask but what
exactly is rib meat anyway?
Not McDonald's, at least as far as their "Chicken McNuggets Made with
White Meat" are concerned:

Uh, meat from the bird's rib cage, perhaps? You've never roasted
a whole chicken?
Are you sure you two aren't really more interested in sport fishing?

You do know that chickens have ribs, right?

I don't think it's simply that they didn't think chickens don't have
ribs. It's the "discolored" bits-and-pieces that causes the faint of
heart and squeamish of stomach to gag when viewing them by mistake. If
it's advertised as "white meat," then by gahd! it should be "white
Personally, I purposely don't look closely enough when noshing on
nuggets. Dipped in a Ranch-and-Pico-Pica cocktail, anything can be
made to taste good. Looking at a processed chicken nugget is sort of
like looking in boloney or hot dogs.

The OP, however, apparently had something different in mind, saying
that it wasn't 100% checken.

I've not noticed your nick before, but based on the total absurdity of
the subject, I have to assume you're either a troll or a complete idiot.
Well, the breast covers the ribs. I would call that rib meat then. The
heart and lungs are under the ribs. I would call that rib meat too.
So, I'm still am not sure what I'd be eating when they say rib meat. If
it was good quality breast meat, I'm sure they'd say so. The fact that
it's usually in small print, that rib meat is included that is, and hard
to find on the package, to me means it is some lower quality filler. Am
I wrong? Now do you understand why we are questioning this? Whatever
it is, I like nice good quality white chicken breast meat, so I will
never buy it. And I prefer a good steak as opposed to a hot dog. Oh
well, to each his own.

What does that have to do with anything? Yeah, I love to fish and have
been fishing all my life.
Then never buy _formed_ chicken nuggets (which is most of them),
rather than real, unprocessed meat chicken nuggets (which are rare).
Any time you see ground up meat, the odds are that they put in
everything but the kitchen sink, from fillers to "cheap meat."
My most un-favorite are certain brands of chorizo.
Careful reading of the label reveals salivary glands,
lymph nodes, etc. The texture/density of these bad brands
is virtually liquid. I'll stick to that chunky chorizo
made in San Jose (whose name I can't remember at the moment),
even though it's more expensive.

You mean, real chorizo.
Those are intended to be fried together with ground
beef or pork. You don't want to cook them solo, but
the best of these items are excellent.
There is no law making it impossible to buy chicken nuggets without rib
You are free to offer such products
But don't complain if your favorite suppliers, the aforementioned
Wendy's and McDonald's, don't offer such products.
If you insist that they legally be required to meet your wishes, you
need a trip up the chimneys. Which I suspect you do.

No it doesn't. Chickens *do* have ribs.
What it means is that the nuggets are mostly chicken breast meat, with
some chicken rib meat in it.
