Bones in pork????

Ok so I have a new weird issue... Wondering if someone can shed some light.

It's just me and my husband here, so I tend to buy larger packages of pork chops and break them up before freezing (I know, I freeze meat. Shame on me!).

Anyway, I thought it was just one package but it appears to be well, all of them. There are tiny little shards of bone all through the meat. Like, almost inedible. What would cause this? If I knew which store it came from, I would take it back.

I am cooking a pork roast tonight, and I inspected it before putting it in the roaster and there too was small bone shards, ranging from the size of a grain of sand to about the size of a small grain of uncooked rice. Why are they there, and what can I do about it? Can they be saved? What causes this?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
