Iowa Governor Wants A Congressional Probe On 'Pink Slime'

The governor of Iowa, Terry Branstad, has said that he wants an investigation started into what he calls "a smear campaign" against pink slime!

The company that makes pink slime (also known as lean, finely textured beef) has shut down production in parts of Iowa, Kansas, and Texas.

About 650 workers have lost their jobs because of this.

Branstad's desire to look into all of the pink slime business may be because he's gotten $150,000 in campaign donations from people in the beef industries.

Well no matter what the investigation finds, at least the U.S. Department of Agriculture will be giving schools the option of having beef without pink slime in it starting next fall.

Either way, all we can say is… gross.
