Weekend reads: Is there pink slime in your ground beef?
Rest assured that our ground beef is 100% ground beef and does not contain pink slime. I am so glad we have our meat to eat!
- ABC News reports that 70 percent of supermarket ground beef contains pink slime. I had no idea. Now I’m really glad I know where my ground beef comes from.
- It’s not just in supermarket ground beef. The USDA is buying 7 million pounds of beef that contains pink slime for our nation's schools according to Yahoo. That’s one really great reason to pack your kids’ lunches.
- The Consumerist explains what pink slime is and how it is created.
- You’ll probably see a photo of what looks like pink soft serve ice cream floating around the Internet and connected to many articles about pink slime. The Washington Post says that photo is not actually what pink slime looks like. That photo has been circulating for years and is actually associated with chicken not beef.
