It’s arguably one of the most popular meat products, but this less-than-appetising photo may turn you off that delicious, sizzling bacon for life.
A photograph of a piece of bacon is going viral for all the wrong reasons — it’s making everyone feel kind of ill. Because of a NIPPLE on the side!
The original thread has sparked a number of disgusted reactions, with some users vowing never to eat bacon again, while others deemed it “horrifying”.
One user, goatcoat, said they used to work in a high-end retail, and admitted the butchers would intentionally give “nipple bacon” to rude customers.
However, they also pointed out that it’s not technically bad to eat.
“For anybody who might get upset about this, let me state for the record that it is not dangerous to eat the nipple, it’s entirely edible.
“It just serves as an unpleasant reminder of where food actually comes from, but is otherwise harmless.”
