I just read this article on Care2.com and had to spread the word. The title caught my eye. I mean how can you ignore something about pink slime in your burger? I just can’t believe that they are, and have been, putting this disgusting stuff in our ground beef and not telling us about it! I’m never eating ground beef again unless I’m sure it’s free of this stuff.
I have been reducing the amount of beef I’ve been consuming period, but this is the final nail in the coffin for ground beef. Eventually we’ll hopefully be buying our beef from Whole Foods and I’ll be asking them if they use this stuff in it. I really hope they don’t. I may even ask at the meat counter of our grocery stores (Meier and Kroger) if they simply grind up the beef or if anything’s added. If they give me a straightforward answer, then I’ll continue to buy their ground beef. If not, looks like I need to get a meat grinder.
My biggest problem to overcome is my love of Taco Bell. Yes, it’s in their ground beef. Luckily I am a big fan of their chicken and have nothing against their steak. Which is good because it looks like I’m going to be eating that now.
