Whistleblowers: 70 percent of U.S. ground beef contains 'pink slime'


www.rawstory.com

A former U.S. Department of Agriculture scientist has come forward with a startling tale of how a substance known as “pink slime” has been embedded in about 70 percent of ground beef sold in the U.S. — a topic ABC News investigated for a segment Wednesday night.

“Pink slime” is largely made up of connective tissue that used to be reserved only for dog foods. It was not classified as “meat” because it was largely seen as unfit for human consumption. It also contains ammonia, which is used to kill off bacteria so people who eat it do not get sick.

Wow,I do not even think we should give this to our animals but to have this being passed off as edible,and prominently within the school system is criminal in imho.

Just one more thing pushing me towards becoming a vegetarian,nothing seems safe to eat or drink anymore.

Fluoride running rampantly in our water supply corrupt corporations like Monsanto destroying & genetically modifying our food...It is insane.

These criminals need to be stopped.

So eating this helps our immune system AND vegetarians can eat it?

Sounds ok to me.

I am not following what you are saying exactly? please enlighten me?

Anything that has to be treated with ammonia and then be passed off as 'food' is a red flag as far as I am concerned.

No thanks.

Well, its packed full of amonia so we wont get sick and we can eat it if we choose a vegetarian lifestyle as it is not considered to actualy be meat, but retains all the tasty tasty flavours of meat.

Sounds awesome.

My thoughts exactly.

It has gotten to the point that anything and everything we eat or drink has become corrupted,manipulated and modified ...We are the ones being lied to or lead to believe all is well, while new facts and findings are proving contrary to what we've been told.

Awesome! Now if Pepsi can just get a greenlight on their aborted fetal-cells for their new taste additive like they wanted, we'll be officially living in my worst nightmare.

Just to be clear. The FDA approves this $h!t, but sends SWAT teams out to close down organic dairy farms? Oooookay

That's seriously wrong. I don't see a lot of genius in a guy sitting in a lab trying to solve world hunger, and the best he can come up with is "dookie."


I'd rather drink People-Pepsi than eat a $h!t Steak. WTF?

So, I've always wondered this since I started making my own food (about 20 yrs). When I'm cooking a burger on the grill, and the pink jelly like substance starts bubbling out, is that what we are talking about?

I've only noticed it for about ten years, but I always wondered wtf was causing the meat to bleed this pink stuff.

Awful....the USDA needs to be hammered for giving the go ahead on this.

And younthought you were getting away from it by not eating fast food......insane. Ground beef should be #ing GROUND BEEF

....And people wonder why I'm 100% for hunting. It sure isn't for the "fun" experience of freezing one's tail off on cold winder days for hours without moving. Only a psycho hunts for the "thrill" of killing. At least after the first time they've actually gotten one.

This is the best argument I can possibly imagine for why hunting is a good thing.
That, and buying meat locally where ever that's technically possible. The "food" just isn't fit to eat. Even I have a sick feeling after this one though...and I thought I'd seen everything.
...every time I say that....errr

I buy Bison and hunt.

I watch my burgers ground from the meat I buy or shoot.

No slime for me.

Crap...I'm a "Psycho". I love getting up at "O-Dark Thirty" to go hunting. Leaning up against a tree and having a Cup 'O Joe from my thermos. With another thermos of soup for lunch.

Waiting for the sun to rise. Grooving with nature and looking for a meal.

I love it.

On a side note, I think deer are attracted to the smell of coffee.

So out of the thousands of people that work at these McNug factories, not one ever said to their friends..

"Yo, I wouldnt eat that nugget if i were you."

Did they not know what they were making?
