this is in breaking political news because the politics involved with this deception,
and because bureaucrats decided and i quote
if its pink, its meat
Gerald Zirnstein grinds his own hamburger these days. Why? Because this former United States Department of Agriculture scientist and, now,
whistleblower, knows that 70 percent of the ground beef we buy at the supermarket contains something he calls “pink slime.”
“Pink slime” is beef trimmings. Once only used in dog food and cooking oil, the trimmings are now sprayed with ammonia so they are safe to eat and
added to most ground beef as a cheaper filler.
It was Zirnstein who, in an USDA memo, first coined the term “pink slime” and is now coming forward to say he won’t buy it.
“It’s economic fraud,” he told ABC News. “It’s not fresh ground beef. … It’s a cheap substitute being added in.”
Zirnstein and his fellow USDA scientist, Carl Custer, both warned against using what the industry calls “lean finely textured beef,” widely known
now as “pink slime,” but their government bosses overruled them.
so if some politician decides pink slime is meat because it is pink does that mean we can eat anything pink?
it would seem to me that the decision to allow this would have to be a direct afont to consumers, and their bodies.
did you know you were eating pink slime?
did the person who made the call get a big cushy job within the meat industry?
you bet you pink ass she did,
is this a clear case of selling out the consumer for a future job with huge perks?
is this how all food decisions are made?
does any feel like eating a burger now?
well even if this is false advertising, misrepresenting a product, corruption of a process of a government office
IT DOESNT MATTER AS LONG AS THE PEOPLE ARE CLUELESS?
will people get mad that fake meat is meat to the politicians if it makes them some money?
do you feel good about feeding your kids pink slime?
too angry way to angry at this to let it go......................................
i will tell EVERYONE I KNOW,
i hope you do the same
