It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It is expected that 70% of all ground beef has "pink slime" in it. This is filler made from unused fat. Now I don't eat red meat, but this pretty much makes me ill. And and and the USDA (who is supposed to protect us) bought 7 million pounds for school lunches.
Do you feel safe now eating this stuff?
What are you going to do about it?

You see when you blindly trust the government, you are under the assumption that one or a group of people know exactly what the hell they are doing. Not to mention, they know what is best for you. How can you trust them? Would you readily eat pink slime if you knew about it?
It's grosser than gross of course. What is even more gross, is the notion that they are protecting you, when clearly they are not. Heck fast food companies won't use it (anymore), but your kids are eating this stuff in school lunches.
Another minor point is; you are getting ripped off! You are buying meat and paying for meat and slime. Nice!
Where's the beef???
