Rotten flesh can be obtained as a "junk" item while fishing.

To eat rotten flesh, press and hold use while rotten flesh is selected in the hotbar.

Eating rotten flesh restores 4 (Hunger.svgHunger.svg) hunger and 0.8 hunger saturation, but has an 80% chance of inflicting food poisoning for 30 seconds (a Hunger effect).

Wolves[edit | edit source]

Rotten flesh can be used to breed and heal tamed wolves, lead them around, and make baby tamed wolves grow up faster by 10% of the remaining time.

Wolves are at no risk of food poisoning.
