Just found a plastic tube in my steak?!?!?!?

My husband and I hadm made steak and eggs for breakfast this morning with our left over steak from Christmas day. It was a large piece of filette mignon (sorry for the spelling if thats wrong) when he cut into his it he pulled.out a long clear plastic/rubber tube!! Clearly not part of the animal at all... it looks like.an air tube or something. About 2 inches long. . Its freaking me out! What should we do about this??

Infeel like we can't even trust if the meat we buy is all natural anymore.

    It's probably an artery or a vein that wasn't removed by the butcher.

    You can always try a different butcher or go organic, but their beef has veins too.

    God forbid you eat a piece of fish and find a worm inside:O

    It's probably a tube used to inject the meat with some sort of aging solution or perservative.

    NO the food we get these days in not hardly natural. It's a shame what our people has let happen in this country, all for the almighty $.

    You get what you pay for, if you want good natural meat and other food it will cost a little more money.

    And Americans still think Lincoln abolished slavery. LOL. This country needed more slaves. All Lincoln did was take the color out of slavery and give them the right to choose who they slave for. We are still slaves, 7.50 an hour is slave wages. Why? Who can afford good quality food on a budget of 7.50 an hour?

    Take the offending product back to the store with the receipt and get your money back. Don't invest much thought into it, nor draw conclusions about all meat, as this is a rarity. I go back with a bad piece of fruit, set it on the counter with my receipt, get the money and spend it on something else. There is no drama to it. It is business. Meat is handled elsewhere, not at the store. They do it at the distribution center. If you want good meat, prime, and individually cut, go to a good butcher in your local community. If you didn't keep the receipt and the packaging, there is nothing to do. Consider it a lesson learned.

    Lucky you. Sue the store, the meatpacker, the slaughterhouse, the meatfactory. Emotional damages. You can't hardly trust meat. It's PTSD. Think of this like a winning the lottery.
