Beef scraps, cow connective tissues…treated with ammonium hydroxide – blended and made into hamburger patties and whatever. Just some ground up lean-beef-trimming deliciousness for your children. Pink Slime at it’s best. At this time, we don’t know if Michelle signed the purchase order for the 7 MILLION POUNDS of this product also known as Soylent Pink. Note: make lunch for your child at home and if the Cafeteria Police removes it from your beloved children, sue the Department of Education. This has to stop.
“We originally called it soylent pink,” microbiologist Carl Custer, who worked at the Food Safety Inspection Service for 35 years, told The Daily. “We looked at the product and we objected to it because it used connective tissues instead of muscle. It was simply not nutritionally equivalent [to ground beef]. My main objection was that it was not meat.”
Custer and microbiologist Gerald Zernstein concluded in a study that the trimmings are a “high risk product,” but Zernstein tells The Daily that “scientists in D.C. were pressured to approve this stuff with minimal safety approval” under President George H.W. Bush’s administration. The USDA asserts that its ground beef purchases “meet the highest standard for food safety.”
Controversy surrounding “pink slime” stems from various safety concerns, particularly dangers associated with ammonium hydroxide, which can both be harmful to eat and has potential to turn into ammonium nitrate — a common component in homemade bombs, according to MSNBC. It’s also used in household cleaners and fertilizers.
Listen up Danica Patrick and all of you who trust the Government to make decisions for you: if you turn your child’s nutrition over the schools, as you have already abandoned them to abominable failing curricula, and are too lazy, or are not yet convinced of the urgency, to pull your kids out of these disgusting Government bastions of hate-filled Liberalism, you are idiots Read more about the Partners in Slime here.
