    We have a saying out here, "parts of the cow no one ever thought to eat before". My wife says that of potted meat product. Now there is a difference between meat that has been preserved and meat that has been chemically altered. It does show the very weakened Government oversight that years of revolving door 'public service' political appointees and the push to get government out of the way of 'progress'.

    But let us not stop at pink slime, I would advise city folk to not investigate any part of the food chain going from factory farm to meat counter, beef, chicken, pork, seafood...

    people grimace at the thought of eating wild game but think nothing of eating that stuff on the styrofoam trays. I have to smile.

    Rubbish. Humans have been eating the whole animal for thousands of years - it is only very recently that money and marketing have made offal and the like unpalatable to the public eye. Properly prepared and cooked, this is no less healthy than any other meat (and probably more so than some meat products). The negativity appears to be based 100% on the visual appearance of the "pink slime".

    People eat mouldy milk, bird embryos, fungus, raw fish and bloated bird livers, often treating them as delicacies, so it's hardly fair to bring our rational in to food choices.

    And if that was the focus of the campaign, I'd be all for it. The attacks are much more aggressive though, hence schools banning food containing the substance from their canteens and companies going out of business. It's entirely the wrong apprach to the issue.

    Yes, but the key aspect of a witch hunt is that it has been predetermined there is a witch so someone is going to burn, guilty or not.

    Look what happened to Taco Bell and other companies when it came out they weren't using 100% beef in their tacos. Soy grits don't sound as bad as pink slime but its nice if they at least let their customers know. Most cans of hotdog chili's that use this product list it in the ingredients. Why does the movie "Soylent Green" come to mind, yuck.

    yeah, all this drama does smell like a feel-good witch hunt, over a possible non-issue.

    We are talking mass production here. Like I said, you can eat that **** all you want, I just want to know when it's being served. Using Ammonia to me seems, "not properly prepared". does it to you?

    They fought the requirement to list the use of ammonia, they made thier own bed here. if the company wishes to survive, and I hope it does, it should do so under the requiment that people using thier product be notified.

    One would think we all would want to know what exactly our food contains, no?

    You admittedly eat like ****, I wouldn't expect you to view ammonia in your food as an issue, go have another big mac, skip.
