Beef Lungs and Tracheas

In Argentina (like in most other parts of the world), you can buy any organ of a beef at the butcher store.­

Did I mention that being vegetarian is illegal in Argentina? (just kidding!)

I took this photo at the Mercado Central in Salta (Argentina).­

In developed countries, many people do not want buy those organs, so they are processed industrially, shredded and turned into sausages, meat-loaf or dog food.­
