Full Answer

Animal meat also includes offal or organ meat, which is the internal organs of an animal, not including the skeletal muscle and skin. Liver is a popular organ meat, and in some localities, brains, tongue and kidneys are also common cuisine. The intestines of sheep and pigs are often used to make sausage casings.

Most of the time, meat refers only to the flesh of mammals, as most of the common livestock species raised for flesh are mammals. The flesh of other creatures is called by the name of that creature rather than meat. For example, fish flesh is simply called fish.

    How can you tell if salami has gone bad?

    A:

    Salami has gone bad and should not be eaten if the edges of the meat turn a brown or gray color, it develops air pockets or has a hardened exterior. White mold on the exterior does not signify spoilage. Unlike other cured meats, salami remains edible for long periods of time, making it more difficult to detect spoilage. Some types of salami have no expiration date.
