Cinema Thursday #9: Ammonia Ridden Pink Sludge

If you’ve gone to a news site lately I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “pink slime.” And it’s no wonder!  70% of ground beef in the U.S. contains this pureed, disinfected goop!  Maybe it really is “safe” at least in the sense that it’s been cleaned, but that begs the question: Why does our beef need to be sterilized?!

To the lady in the video below who stated that use of pink slime does not need to be disclosed because “It’s beef.”  The beef has been soaked in ammonia!  Ammonia is the additive!

On the bright side, McDonalds has decided not to use soylent pink anymore.  Because obviously no one would order a supersize McSlime with a large ammonia to go, please.
