First of all, the USDA would NEVER knowingly allow harmful chemicals to be a part of the food system. Their purpose is to ensure the safety of our food supply, BPI's beef that sensationalists have termed "pink slime" is still 100% beef. BPI has been processing trimmings for over 30 years; if there had been an issue with the process, we would have known long ago.

Second, the stringent testing program that BPI has in place makes it IMPOSSIBLE for beef with e.coli or any pathogens to make it into a consumer's meal.

Finally, the process of extracting fat from beef trimmings is revolutionary and hard for outsiders to conceptualize. Because of the difficulty of this process, the trimmings used to go to waste- but BPI's ability to utilize all beef from cattle has allowed civilization to be more resourceful. The process does not modify the meat- its simply a extraction and security enhancement method. If you are really encouraging people to think, provide the real facts not just entertainment to keep readers.




Most recently it was uncovered that these $1 cheeseburgers, along with the rest of McDonald’s’ beef and chicken, were actually harnessing ‘pink slime’ scrap meat covered with ammonium hydroxide. Not only does this fake meat provide no nutritional value at all, but it is chemically contaminated from ammonia, the toxic cleaning agent found under the sink. The meat is actually fat trimmings and connective tissue that are separated from the bone – scrap meat that is not fit for human consumption. The ammonia treatment is in response to the danger of contamination from salmonella or E. coli, but the scrap meats themselves are more likely to contain pathogens. Despite the chemical treatment, the meat is still in the line of fire for contamination.


1. This article was written March 24, 2012. McDonalds has not purchased BPI's product in nearly a year- so it is certainly not "most recently".

2. "fake meat" = is it meat or what is it? I have never heard of fake meat. BPI is simply extracting the meat, not adding any artificial elements.

3.

chemically contaminated from ammonia, the toxic cleaning agent found under the sink
.... In reality- Ammonium hydroxide is ammonia and water; it's not the kind of ammonia used to make fertilizers and household cleaners, according to the American Meat Institute. Additionally, the International Food Information Council Foundation has informed consumers that ammonium hydroxide is used as an antimicrobial food additive in baked goods, cheeses, puddings, chocolates and other confectionery such as caramels. Other forms of ammonia are used in condiments, relishes, snack foods, jams and jellies and nonalcoholic beverages.

4.

scrap meat that is not fit for human consumption
, to the contrary- LFTB (Lean finely textured beef) is not scraps destined for pet food but is, rather, a federally USDA inspected and approved beef product.

5.

"The ammonia treatment is in response to the danger of contamination from salmonella or E. coli, but the scrap meats themselves are more likely to contain pathogens. Despite the chemical treatment, the meat is still in the line of fire for contamination.
I have already discussed BPI's test and hold procedures, but I will recap- BPI tests every block of beef that is produced for numerous strains of e.coli, bacteria and pathogens. Visit beefproducts.com- they have a video available detailing the test and hold procedures.
