I think I lived off of pb&j sandwiches in high school. I'd be afraid to eat stuff for lunch, too.

I saw this a few years ago in regards to processed chicken. I havent touched a McNugget since. Truth be told though, unless you raise your own cows/chickens, etc. and grow all of your own fruits and vegetables, theres going to be something you eat that you wouldnt if you knew what was going on. Sometimes ignorance is better.

McDonald's and Taco Bell have banned it, but now the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is buying 7 million pounds of beef containing ammonium hydroxide-treated ground connective tissue and meat scraps and serving it up to America's school kids.
Why not save some money and make the politicians, their assistants, etc. eat school lunches too?

The thing that gets me is it's not even technically "meat". Sure it's a cow product, but it's not meat.

From the Daily Beast:

Want to take a second look at that burger you’re about to bite into? The “pink slime” that was made famous by the food movie Food Inc. has reportedly made its way into the majority of America’s meat. A recent estimation says that up to 70 percent of ground beef at grocery stores contain the slime, and up to 25 percent of all hamburger patties. The slime is made up of low-grade trimmings that come from the most contaminated parts of cows and was once only used in dog foods and cooking oil. But a new treatment has made the slime safe to eat, according to the USDA. The gelatinlike substance is made up mostly of connective tissue and therefore has no nutritional value. USDA organic meat is said to contain no slime, but there have been no measures put in place to force meatpackers to reveal how much slime their beef contains.

I question that 70% number. If I buy something that says ground chuck, wouldn't it be false advertising to put anything other than ground chuck? Wouldn't that go for any cut of ground beef?

That's a darn good question... pretty much however, I am off hamburger meat unless I grind it myself.

I rarely eat ground beef, but when I do I get the organic stuff.

On the rare occasions when I eat fast food, it's always a grilled chicken breast sandwich. That seems to be pretty safe.

When I discovered that beef makes me gassy (sorry if that's TMI), my beef consumption went down 75% or more.
