Moose Meat Bubble

by Lynn
(Canada)

I found while cutting my meat something that looked like a bubble with a little white dot inside.


There was a lot???

Is that normal or dangerous?




Lynn, without seeing a picture it is difficult to diagnose exactly what you saw. I suspect all you are seeing is body fluids or fat deposits.

Please, if you have a picture, send it to us so we can figure out your moose meat bubbles.

Moose "measles"
by: Coastal gal

You likely have meat infected with the tapeworm Taenia krabbei. (Ie. Moose measles) This is totally harmless to humans but may look a little unappetizing. Adult worms live in the intestines of wolves, bears and other carnivores. Eggs are eaten by moose or deer while grazing, larva develop and stay dormant in the meat until it is eaten by a carnivore and the cycle repeated. They will not infect humans but can infect dogs if they are fed raw meat.
If the meat has a lot it may look more appealing as ground meat but you can remove small amounts for appearance if you want or just cook as usual. Don't be squeamish and don't let an uneducated butcher tell you your meat is not good. Enjoy what you worked so hard to get!
