By now you've probably read about "pink slime." This is the gelatinous ooze that is found in 70% of the hamburger sold in America. http://news.yahoo.com/pink-slime-choice-schools-230530972--abc-news.html
I gotta tell ya. I was a little pissed off to read about that slime. Why? Because we pay billions for a Food and Drug Administration who I was under the impression- policed shit like this. And if not the FDA, what about the USDA?
So our government has criminally charged people for selling whole, unpasteurized, and safe milk. But grinding up God knows what and sticking it in our food- well that is apparently fine.
So in addition to getting gouged 5 bucks a pound for the worst, ground up pieces of a cow, they throw in what- veins, fat, ligaments, and what ever else...just exactly what are the ingredients in pink slime? The specific parts, please. Good luck finding that information because I can't.
I have a friend that has been buying commercially raised elk. No fat, hormones, no ground up hooves. Cheaper and a lot healthier. Just some food for thought.
*Safeway will no longer sell pink slime. I wish they had stores here. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blogs/safeway-stop-selling-pink-slime-textured-beef-103644102--abc-news.html
