It doesn't improve with age

So, Bulgarian authorities recently impounded 75 tons of beef which had been imported from Ireland. Why did they go to the trouble of doing this? Well, the meat was apparently twenty years old:
Three truckloads containing 75 tons of the discoloured meat was blocked at Bulgaria's south-west border with Greece last month because its papers were suspect.


Bulgarian media have reported that meat producers import old meat to use in salami and other processed food.
Okay, so processed meat products have a rich history of including all sorts of nasty stuff--that I understand. What I want to know is why anybody would have bothered to hang onto the meat for twenty f'n years!!?

Eeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwww. Ew ew ew ew ew ew.

On the other hand, if it tastes good, I'll eat it. (More a reference to salami-made-with-two-decades-old-rancid-meat than the actual rancid meat itself.)
