Pink slime has made big news lately. Its in school lunch (oooo, gross!) and in ground beef (geez, this is even worse).
HEB, our local grocery store, has declared “all of its beef sold in H-E-B supermarkets is 100 percent pure and contains no additives.“
Forgive me for thinking like a philosopher (or lawyer), but pink slime is made from cow parts, so its still “pure beef”. Does the “no additives” mean it doesn’t contain the ammonia hydroxide used to kill bacteria (which weirds me out, also)? What does this really mean? I’m not normally a freak-out-about-food kinda gal, but this really freaks me out.
Anyone else have more information on this? What do you think? Should I be as freaked out by this as I am?
