Liberty and Freedom
“ . . . the Feds have announced that the USDA is buying seven million pounds of something that is affectionately known as ‘pink slime.’”
“The seven million pounds of this frankenmeat product purchased by the USDA is not a new addition to the lunch programs in schools, just a substantial increase. The New York Times reported that in 2009 the U.S. government purchased 5.5 million pounds of the stuff.
“Pink slime is a mixture of leftover trimmings, sinew, and other beef parts culled from a cow once the expensive and more recognizable cuts of meat have been harvested and sent to a butcher. The collection of leftovers is spun in a centrifuge to remove excess fat, washed in a disinfecting solution and then minced for use in various applications.”
It is then treated with ammonia.
Yes, this sounds healthy.
That “free lunch” program doesn’t sound so great now, does it??? This is what we can expect from any government program. Slime.
Gross. No wonder they didn't want that mother putting a turkey sandwich in her kids lunch. They have too much slime to use up.
McDonalds has said they will discontinue the use of pink slime in their products. Now I know where the excess is going.
I'm vegetarian, but if I was going to eat meat, it would have to be local farmers or venison.
I have noticed a lot of slime in Government.......just sayin'!
