Pink Slime Additive question?

Pink Slime Additive question?

Answer:

First, good call on Soylent Green. Both the movie and the book it was based on are excellent. Second, pink slime, and its varieties made of chicken and pork, have been around for decades. Anything that has mechanically separated . is pink slime made of beef, chicken or pork. (granted, chicken pink slime isn't pink.) I mean, what do you think McDonalds McNuggets are made of? Or the McRib? Lots of hotdogs use pink slime as well, as does pet food. Again, read the ingredients.
If they were really out for our best interest they would've labeled the stuff finely textured beef and explain the procedure to begin with. They didn't do it because it started out in dog food. They know people don't take all the scraps from their own table, mush it up onto a paste, pre cook to 100 degrees, spin in a centrifuge and pour ammonia on it to kill bacteria, then mix it up in the meat they will have next time. Agribusiness has a very strong lobby in washington. They spent $28,000,000 lobbying since last year. So if they can bribe enough politicians you never know. It could continue to be in the meat like before. It's starting already: www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-. You can still buy from places that don't have the stuff in the meat. Just be careful where you buy it from.
I only buy ground sirloin or the ground beef they do right there in the market, but from what I've seen, the pink slime stuff is still just ground up beef (or beef parts, anyway) that are processed. It's safe, if not very appetizing. I'd nibble on Miranda Kerr in a heartbeat.
Battery or hand-operated radio.
The very first thing that I would have with me is a flashlight.
