Default What Mc Donald's is feeding you...

They refer to it as " pink slime", it used to be used ONLY in pet food, but since 2001 a savings of 3 cents a pound has persuaded McDonald's that Americans would love to feed their family's dogfood as a treat.

Here is the article:

please, please, please, let them know you won't eat this ****!

Soylent Pink today, Soylent Green tomorrow!

They can use it all they want.
I stopped going to McDonald's many, many years ago.
That is the best way to tackle this issue.

Accroding to the article it's not just Mcdonald's.

Quote:
With the U.S.D.A.’s stamp of approval, the company’s processed beef has become a mainstay in America’s hamburgers. McDonald’s, Burger King and other fast-food giants use it as a component in ground beef, as do grocery chains. The federal school lunch program used an estimated 5.5 million pounds of the processed beef last year alone.

It's crap like this that makes a carnivore think more and more about becoming a vegetarian. Oh yeah, that Grade A steak you bought at the commissary? It's inflated like a balloon with chemicals they put in cigarettes and drain-o. Well, I guess my new year's eve dinner will be a bottle of scotch and some Chimay!

Screw McDonalds.

Indeed, it's used by BK, other fast food, grocery stores and school cafeterias. It's just easier to pick on McD. It's kind of like picking on Walmart. Easy target.

Anyway, McD's burgers weren't ever that good in my generation anyway. I still enjoy their chicken though now that they've improved it.

Approved in 2007. As an insider that doesn't shock me. It also won't shock me when in a couple months it isn't approved anymore.

The McDonalds in my neighborhood is owned by the corporation and not a franchise, and it makes all the difference. Everything that I've had there is hot, fresh, and doesn't have the construction problems that you find in other stores. Everything looks like it does in the commercials.

And their supply comes from the same distributor.

Meh, what's a little ammonia injected beef-like parts? If you swallow your chew spit, it'll clean your whole system.
