yes I was just about to ask the same question Bluetongue.
I would prefer to hear this from someone authorised in the industry with an indication of their background, as to what their qualifications and other credentials are, in order to come up with a statement like this.
There's an emu farm nearby, and their website states that they sell their emu meat mainly to export customers (human consumption) but that the Public are also permitted to buy from them . I buy kangaroo meat and kangaroo proscuitto fron an established online grocery store.
Those two examples would, at least indicate to me, that businesses must surely have passed proper food health & safety regulations, fulfilled meat industry standards, quality assurance, quarantine etc, if you know what I mean. Basically whatever it takes to get a piece of emu or kangaroo from the paddock to my dinner plate must surely have gone through a lot of formal processes & government regulations that we, in the kitchen, don't see or know what is involved.
My neighbour works for Quarantine & Quality Control in the export meat industry and one of his main job tasks is to make sure that the meats Australia's producing meet industry standards for human consumption in the export market. Eg, one of the things he'd be checking for are parasites. (Not sure if emu's one of those he checks but I hope I've gotten my point across)
There are people out there who are qualified, or have gone to university, or work for the government or relevant organisations of authority, who get paid to work, & come to the sort of conclusions and statements made at the beginning of this topic.
I'm not trying to sound rude but trying to raise the importance and implications of making such statements.
