What do you think about the pink slime controversy?
What I know is that this company has been trimming meat for 20 years. They grind it extra fine. Since it has been processed more than other meat it has a higher risk of contamination so they sterilize it with ammonia. All the ammonia is removed. Then this meat is added to regular hamburger. At most a percent or two. This lowers the price of meat. This company has never been associated with of any of the E-coli outbreaks.
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver brought the issue of pink slime out and caused a public uproar, unfounded in my opinion. Now the plants have closed and 700 people have lost their jobs.
I think this is a shame.
