Is anyone reporting anything about lean finely textured pork??
porky slime anyone?
I have a new meat grinder and I am not afraid to use it.
Soylent green is people.......
Want great ground beef? Get a small meat grinder, run your favorite cuts through it, voila.
The pink slime (Lean Finely Textured Beef) isn't just at Safeway its also purchased by Yum brands, AMS Agricultural Marketing Service) School lunch program. Yes, our kids are getting it for lunch. I worked for thiis company for 8 years. The ammonia (pH enhanced product) everybody is worried about is hit and miss sometimes at higher or lower levels than their HACCP guidelines require depending on where the operator or Quality Assurance inspector place the pH probe in the sample. Anyway its always at different levels the probe is just randomly placed until the right levels are found. On the news clip it was asked if the coverage was fair. People should know what they are really eating. The Lean Finely Textured Beef is basically mechanically seperated during the process it is mixed with several other parts glands, connective tissue and whatever else couldn't be used from the supplier. Whats even more decieving is this product is used in several other ground beef products (ground chuck, ground sirloin, ground round). I hope this is reported on further. I think the public would be really surprised with the deceptive practices going on.
Fair or not, Lord knows what else the USDA has permitted. I'm fortunate enough to live close to a farm where beef is raised in organic fashion, no growth hormone, etc. Nice to live in a rural area where you can meet the rancher personally.
