Largest Supermarket Chain In The U.S. Stops Selling Pink Slime

We're so glad food retailers are making the RIGHT decision by ending the sale of beef that includes what the meat companies call "lean, finely textured beef," and what we call "gross."

Kroger, the largest chain of supermarkets in the U.S., has announced it will no longer purchase beef with pink slime, an ammonia-treated filler/cheap and disgusting substitute for real meat.

The grocery giant released a statement explaining their decision that reads:

"Our customers have expressed their concerns that the use of lean finely textured beef — while fully approved by the USDA for safety and quality — is something they do not want in their ground beef. As a result, Kroger will no longer purchase ground beef containing lean finely textured beef."

Thank you!

Kroger has joined Safeway, the second-largest supermarket chain, in their initiative, along with Dutch-owned chain Stop & Shop.

Does your store still sell pink slime? Don't buy it! Tell the managers you want ACTUAL meat and you'll take your business elsewhere if they don't get it.
