My favorite quote in the video: “it’s pink, therefore it’s meat.” Not exactly what I would consider words to live by!
And of course, in typical USDA fashion, they’ve managed to find a way to allow Big Beef to feed the U.S. population these ammonia-soaked fat trimmings without having to put it on the beef label or disclose it to the public in any way.
Former undersecretary of agriculture, Joann Smith─the USDA official who approved pink slime─should be ashamed of her decision. But perhaps her $1.2 million in earnings as a member of the Board of Directors of Beef Products Inc.─the makers of the pink slime─has helped to ease her emotional anguish.
And if pink slime being in 70% of the beef at your local supermarket wasn't shocking enough for you, now it seems that the USDA has plans to feed it to your kids. That's right, it's part of the national school lunch program!
