McDonald’s, Taco Bell and Burger King are ousting “Pink Slime” but not schools?
McDonald’s, Taco Bell and Burger King are ousting “Pink Slime” from their food items – but can we really be happy? Well, it seems that we have to go a long way to bring it under control!
According to Natural News, McDonald’s, Taco Bell and Burger King are ousting “lean finely textured beef,” aka “pink slime,” from their menus. But according to Mother Jones, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) plans to keep ordering this imitation, ammonia-laced product for use in its National School Lunch Program (NSLP), a taxpayer-funded government food program that serves low-income students.
The pink slime incident became popular and gained momentum with the release of the acclaimed 2008 documentary Food Inc. Robert Kenner, the film’s director, revealed an inside look into Beef Products International (BPI), a South Sioux City, Neb.-based processing plant that produces most of the nation’s supply of pink slime. The product, which is composed of bovine connective tissue and random beef scraps doused in ammonia and formed into a paste, is commonly used as a beef filler, because it is low-cost and supposedly less risky compared to conventional ground beef.

Scientists are being paid thousands of dollars to create artificial food items that will cater to two vital elements – taste and appearance of the food. No importance is given to the quality of the food, even if that means risking the lives of the individuals who consume these items. The ultimate goal is to make more and more money without paying attention to the quality and the well being of the individuals. As long as the big food giants are making huge profits, they are happy. And it seems that they are willing to resort to any means to ensure this profit. The best example of this is the “pink slime” incident.
