Cooked Pork - Bright pink spots?

carriej22 | Jan 7, 201509:51 AM     3

So I made pork loin chops the other night. I cook mine forever in a dutch oven, usually alone and then once they're cooked I add some cream of mushroom soup. This is how I pretty much always make these in the winter.

When we ate them, we didn't notice anything different or weird. They were cooked for well over an hour, so they were definitely cooked.

I'm reheating some of them today for lunch. I look in the microwave and see bright pink spots sort of bleeding out of the meat. They looked fine when I put them in. It's not "cooking" so I know it's not blood. This picture makes it look sort of red, but I can assure you it's hot pink like fuchsia.

What is this?
