Chicken Sodium Injection

Officials at the USDA say they are reviewing the issue of chicken sodium-injection.
Chicken labeled "natural" is being injected with a saltwater solution. The industry calls it a marinade to make the chicken moist, but consumer advocates claim shoppers are being deceived. Many consumers do not know that when they purchase chicken labeled natural it may contain up to 15 percent saltwater. The injected chicken has up to eight times the salt of unaltered chicken.
