Why is my liver falling apart?

Liver used to be firm. Now when I pick it up it falls apart. What's going on?

    How do you prepare it?

      What type of liver? Hopefully this is not a self-inspection.

        Do you mean raw or cooked? Maybe it has been sliced very thin (to sell more.)

          It's raw. It falls apart when I pull it out of the pack.

            Chicken? Beef? Calf? Lamb? Turkey? Pig? Trigger fish?
            What kind of liver?

                It was beef liver. It was frozen when I bought it. So many people don't like liver so it was probably old.

          You either overcooked, or bought old liver.

            I see that some times straight out of the carton.
            Not firm, almost like must! I believe it was frozen & defrosted several times.

              Hmm, you may be drinking too much. Try abstaining a couple of days a week at least.

                Folks, we've been removing many iterations of this joke to try and keep this thread focused on the actual problem that marymac is experiencing, but we're feeling like that may have been a mistake, because it keeps popping back up. We're going to leave this one up, so everyone knows the joke has been made.

                  Humor gives a poster, thread, and, therefore, forum and website personality. Humor is entertaining and attractive to people. It makes us smile and laugh and that is a good thing - for both us as users and you as a company.

                  You guys may want to consider relaxing a little and let your users post a little more freely rather than filtering everything out that doesn't fit a bureaucratic monotonous tone.

                Has this happened once? Or is this a continuing problem? Buy a better/different brand, make pate',...

                  I don't overcook liver. Brown on one side, flip over and brown on the other. I think it must be old. They used to sell it fresh, now only frozen.
