    ‘Pink Slime’ Maker Cuts Back Production. Is That a Good Thing?

    'Pink Slime' Maker Cuts Back Production. Is That a Good Thing? | Healthland | TIME.com


    The South Dakota-based company that manufactures so-called pink slime, the ammonia-treated beef filler that has recently stirred up so much bile from the public, announced it is suspending operations at three of its four plants that pump out the product, due to falling sales.The decision came after consumers, parents, school administrators and national personalities like celebrity chef Jamie Oliver took to social media to protest the fact that the low-fat filler is included in foods without any indication on the label. Products that contain pink slime include fresh retail ground beef, low-fat hot dogs, lunch meats, pepperoni, meatballs, frozen entrees and canned foods.

    This is wonderful news. I actually think they should be allowed to use this crap, IF they list it as an ingredient. They fought against this and the FDA in cahoots allows companies NOT to list this as an ingredient.

    It's disgusting, but if you want to eat dog food scraps, you should be allowed to, however you should know about it.


    That may be, but the company’s bound to have a tough time wooing back the hundreds of thousands of consumers who have already decided pink slime is too unappetizing to tolerate. For now it seems consumers might have their way, but one has to wonder, with pink slime off the production line, what additive will take its place?

    how about "NONE" asshole. Maybe when we buy ground beef, it contains, only.... wait for it..... GROUND BEEF. All additives should be law be required to be listed, including the excluded pink slime.

    I'm all for listing this... but I'm even more for removing it out of the food menu... it can't possibly be healthy to eat this. It's .... low grade hot dog meat... I didn't even know it was possible to make something that gross...

    What's the practical difference between eating ground dead cow, sliced dead cow or liquefied dead cow? Do you think there are no additives in your other "pure" meat products?

    It seems to me that the ick factor has taken over (in a very blinkered manner) and what should have been a reasonable issue of labelling has turned in to a witch-hunt that will ultimately do more harm than good.

    It's largest customer? The federal governments school lunch program.


    If you have eaten ground beef out in the last couple of years, You've eaten it.

    I'm convinced a steak bought at your local supermarket is in the long run far more healthy for your body than anything that looks like play dough....

    none, I usually see my meat alive before it's dead. I buy from organic farms, and other natural sources that don't **** with my food.

    If you read up on butchering, this part of the meat, is where all the bacteria and stuff that would make you sick lies, In order to make it palatable to dogs, they slimed it... Then they got the idea they could sell it to humans....

    If you want to eat it, Enjoy, but by law you should be forced to list it.

    Uhm a witch hunt sounds like something is being hunted down, this company has lobbied for years to keep its pink slime from even being listed as an ingredient.
