Brace Yourself ‘Pink Slime’ Is Back!

Pink Slime

Remember all the fuss over ‘Pink Slime”? A story broke in 2012 that grocery chains and fast food outlets were using a filler called lean finely textured beef in their ground meat. “LFTB ” is made of scraps, processed with ammonia. The product came to be known by the nickname “Pink Slime.” ABC News aired a report, explaining disclosure of the filler’s prescence was not required by law. The public backlash resulted in many vendors discontinuing its use. The processor, Beef Products incorporated, experienced an 80% drop in business, and closed 3 of its 4 plants. Beef prices are at an all time high, and “Pink Slime” is making a comeback. A BPI spokesman says,”We’ve seen an uptick in the business.” KADN reports the company plans to reopen one of its Kansas plants. Do you want Pink Slime in your burger?
