Turning Buffet Food into Pig Food into People Food

Earlier this year, Andrew Zimmern was spotted all over Las Vegas filming for the 100th episode of Bizarre Foods America. Now all that secretive taping will be revealed July 9 with a one-hour retrospective of the past six years, followed by all the glory that is in Las Vegas.

Here, a look at how RC Farms in North Las Vegas takes all the scrap food from the MGM Resorts properties and turns it into food for the pigs, which in turn get sold back to the resorts for food.

Fair warning: the video is pretty gross, so if you’re eating your lunch, you may want to wait. Zimmern say something about "particulates" flying through the air when they're dumped. "At the end of the day today I think I might burn my underwear," Zimmern says.
