How can you have turkey(made of turkeys clearly) and ham(from a pig yes?) in one meat?

I don't get it!!

Isn't it just squished up turkey offal meat, sliced?

Don't think it contains any piggy products. grin

With you on this one, Mom... I have never understood why they gave this product such a weird name!

My guess is it's never been anywhere near either a pig or a turkey thoughgrin

Its revolting that is what it is, reformed meat, i.e the stuff scraped and pressure washed off the bones, picked up off the floor, boiled mashed together. God knows what else is in it. Bleugh.

But to answert your question I think it is just turkey, and they have added the ham bit to the name, so as dafties associate it with being sandwich meat.

I may be wrong of course, there could be countless other animals in there judging by the smell of it.

i think ham means from the leg. doesn't have to mean pig. so turkey ham is from a turkey's leg. well, probably lots of turkeys..

so it can be Turkey and pig, it's just the bits that no one wanted smushed together?
