Manufacturer: Pink Slime Is Good For Kids

Beef Products Inc., makers of ground beef that includes the filler "Pink Slime", says the products it sells to schools are not only safe but good for kids. "Pink Slime" is a combination of beef fat and waste trimmings that is treated with ammonia to kill the high levels of salmonella bacteria.

Beef Products Inc., makers of ground beef products that use the filler known as “Pink Slime”, says its “lean finely textured beef” or LFTB is perfectly safe and nutritious. The federal government has plans to buy 7 million pounds of ground beef that includes “Pink Slime”.

“Including LFTB in the national school lunch program’s beef products accomplishes three important goals on behalf of 32 million kids,” BPI spokesman Rich Jochum said. “It 1) improves the nutritional profile, 2) increases the safety of the products and 3) makes us a buttload of money because the stuff in Pink Slime is essentially garbage.”

“Pink Slime” is made from fat and waste trimmings – where salmonella and E. Coli concentrations are highest – and saves as much as three cents per pound of processed ground beef.

“And we’re passing that savings on to you, the consumer” Jochum said. “Sure if you actually saw or smelled this stuff you’d gag on your own vomit, but we’re talking three cents a pound!”

  1. This is even more sick because the manufacturers are actually trying to tell us that this garbage is fine to eat 😦 Great post and I look forward to sharing more with you:)
