So I am going to go out on a limb here.

And make the assumption that there is a way to tell the difference between good Spam and bad Spam.

This bad spam apparently may have pieces of metal in it.

Which would presumably be metal free.

If I was forced to eat Spam, I guess a little metal would be the last thing I had to worry about, but to the OP thanks for looking out.

So the spam eaters that prepped by laying in a supply when times were good can continue to consume while the unprepared must do without until spam is again made safe.

Kind of a goofy little lesson in why being prepared can pay off even if North Korea never launches, Hillary never becomes president, or a solar flare never takes out the electrical grid.

Anyone has hasn't tried a version of Spam that revealed its greatness to them, just hasn't arrived yet.

None of mine was new enough to be subject to the recall.

On the subject of spam, fried up some spam slices this morning along with some eggs and had them on toasted english muffins with a melted slice of cheese.

Good stuff Maynard.

Actually, it's very easy to beat. But it's not bad at all.

All they need to do is include a magnet along with the easy can opening key if those are still provided. A quick wave over your plate and you know your dinner is good to go.

What this tells us is that they have no quality control ie. metal detection in the manufacturing process. Turkey ones are gtg.

Thank goodness those cans never got shipped here.
Spam is an integral part of our local cuisine.

I ate spam pretty regularly growing up but I haven't touched the stuff in 30 years. It really would be a bad situation for me to ever eat it again. Some people love it and some people hate it but not too many are on the fence when it comes to spam.

A meal fit for a king when you're hungry.

As for me, I like the stuff even when I'm not hungry.

I just ran a list of canned goods we need to get to re-stock the pantry.

4 cases SPAM
2 Cases Whole Green Beans
1 Case Beef Ravioli
1 Case Italian Sausage Ravioli
1 Case Red Beans & Rice
2 cases Ramen Noodles
2 cases Canned Chicken
2 cases corn
2 cases creamed corn
2 cases peas
2 cases carrots
2 cases baby carrots
2 cases Reids German Potato Salad
2 cases Spiced Cabbage

We've already put a half pig in the freezer and will finish off the last half beef and will put another one in about August/September.

And breakfast this morning was Spam, egg, cheese on a bagel. Yum.
