Rotten Flesh is a food item added in the Adventure Update. It is dropped by Zombies and Zombie Pigmen when killed, and restores two when eaten. It can also be found in chests in Abandoned Mine Shafts and Desert Temples. However, Rotten Flesh has an 80% chance of giving the Player food poisoning, which makes the hunger meter deplete three times faster than normal for thirty seconds, but expert players use the quick fill to recover some of their health when they have no other food. Rotten Flesh can be given to tamed wolves to cause them to breed.
It can also be fed to tame wolves as food, seeing it does not give them food poisoning (this is perhaps it's greatest use).
