  • Is It Time to Embrace Pink Slime? (Article Name)

    It's really sad what we are doing to our children and ourselves.

    What a mess we have gotten ourselves in, all in the name of profit.

    I hope not. I bought some Halal ground beef yesterday and it was yummy. Probably grain-fed, but I don't care, it made good hamburgers.

      Pink slime should be considered dog food. I think it takes real cynicism to consider it fit for children. I mean, motherly instinct would tell you it's dog food, not people food. Even if pink slime could be considered perfectly safe for human consumption, you just wouldn't serve something like that to someone you love. That's probably the biggest issue I have with all our factory food. Giant corporations have no use for motherly love; it's not profitable. Remove that, and it's just not nourishment anymore, it's dog food.

        It's not even worthy of being coyote bait..let alone to feed to my pets or those I care about. I'll grind my own meat before I ever buy the stuff.

          I'm going to run a nice juicy raw steak through my juicer today to make a burger for dinner.

          1st time attempting it and not sure how I will clean all the juicer attachments after... but it's gotta be better than the pink goo.

            Basically whats wrong with pink slime is the chemichals they use to seperate it, not the gibblets of meat that are surrounding the bones that the amonia is used to get. Those are the best parts, its natural fat thats delicious, and holds all kinds of nutrients.
            We butcher our own beef, we use no chemichals just a band saw and some sharp knives, but you can damn sure bet I get all those goodies in my burger!!!!

              Pink Slime = the mixture of brain/spinal fluids and ammonium hydroxide.
              This is non-muscle meat and allowing it in any meats is fraudulent labelling....I agree.
              This 'mixture' has been linked to cancer and the World Cancer Research Fund recommends to avoid it...totally agree.

              This sounds disgusting. On top of this they add meat glue, food color agents and preservatives....mmmh yummm?

              I'm so glad I found MDA!

                It shouldn't be considered dog food! Dogs should get nice raw meaty bones and healthy organs too.

                Pink slime is not food for anyone.

                    I don't buy ground anything anymore and on the news they had those for pink slime saying that it must stay in meat to save jobs...so now pink slime saves the economy or some sh!t...whatevs...it is a sad state of affairs when they try to JUSTIFY adding in poison to REAL food....why does meat need fillers AT ALL?
                    I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

                    You're never going to get to the top of the stairs if you don't walk up them.

                      All due respect, speaking as the human companion of a wonderful dog, I would not feed this to my dog--no living being should eat this garbage!

                        There's a registered dietician endorsing the use of pink slime and when I responded that it was probably her crappy, government based education, she got all offended and blocked me

                        If it was connective tissues, fats etc. hold the ammonia, I would eat it. But as it is, it's not natural and it's disgusting.
