Filed under: Icky Icky PooBusiness BlitzHealthFast Food

Seriously, we understand wanting to dispel rumors that your food contains the ultra-gross "pink slime."

But what happens when you show the actually process, and it turns out to be almost just as gross — but with just fewer chemicals??

The (above) happens! That's McDonald's attempt to do just that, and it's NOT very appetizing even without the pink slime!

We mean, they even say:

"Let's start in the de-boning department."

That might be one of the ickiest phrases on the planet!

Regardless of how gross it might look or seem, we do find the whole 'pro-cess' (Oh, Canada!) super inneresting!

People should know about where their food comes anyway!

Watch it (above)!!

ABC News Catches Another Lawsuit Over Pink Slime!

Pink slime manufacturers have had major BEEF with ABC News after they told the truth behind the icky additive they put in their meat.

And as a result, a U.S. beef processing company sued them, then sent the suit to Federal Court… and now, the director of a South Dakota-based processing plant, Bruce Smith is suing the news agency because

ABC Wants Pink Slime Lawsuit To Go To Fed Court

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsLegal MattersFood

pink-slime-goes-bankrupt.jpg

Here's an interesting update on the lawsuit filed by pink slime manufacturers against ABC news: ABC wants the lawsuit moved to federal court instead of circuit court.

If you can't remember, Beef Products Inc. is suing ABC News Inc. for defamation over its coverage of a meat product with the nickname 'pink slime.' It fits, and we call it that, because that's what it is. The company who is losing money because people are now aware of how gross it is says the network created an inaccurate impression that the product is unsafe.

We disagree, they just revealed how disgusting it is.

'Pink Slime' Maker Lays Off MORE People!

Filed under: Sad SadBusiness BlitzFood

gross-pink-sime-stuff.jpg

Beef Products Inc. (BPI) is the company that makes "pink slime."

BPI said it will be laying off 86 employees from its South Dakota corporate office because of a "campaign of misinformation."

This is their second round of layoffs since all the negative publicity surrounded its gross beef product.

The company and outside food-safety companies declare "pink slime" safe to eat, but it was just too gross for most people when they found out what it was actually made of.

Which is basically a bunch of yuck. Gross.

This round of layoffs is nothing compared to the initial 650 people who lost their jobs at three plants.

We feel really badly that people had to lose their jobs but we still feel like it's good that we know where our food is coming from and that the general public can cause real change.

Is Meat Glue The New Pink Slime??

Filed under: FoodHealth

meat-glue-pink-slime-gross.jpg

No… please no.

First pink slime, then tuna scrape and now… MEAT GLUE!

Is there nothing safe to eat anymore other than rocks and shadows?

Meat glue is a protein adhesive that takes leftover pieces of meat and holds them together so they can look like normal, good cuts of meat.

The two most popular meat glues are Activa and Fibrimex.

Activa is a white powder form of a natural coagulant enzyme called transglutaminase.

Fibrimex is made of enzymes extracted from pig or beef blood.

That is absolutely disgusting. Excuse us, we're feeling sorta barfy.

A policy consultant for the Center for Food Safety said:

"For decades, the meat industry has conveniently operated in the dark, not sharing the dirty details of their practices with the public, while the federal government looked the other way. But now, consumers are demanding to know the truth about what they are."

The worst part of all this is that not even vegetarians are safe. Activa is being used in vegetarian meat substitutes.

Meat glue in our tofurkey??

No thanks.

Is 'Tuna Scrape' The New 'Pink Slime'??

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFoodHealth

sushi-tuna-scaep-gross.jpg

It seems that ever since the whole "pink slime" controversy, the general public has been more aware of what they eat.

Now consumers are looking at a product called "tuna scrape." It's similar to pink slime in that it's the bits of meat scraped off of the bones.

A recent salmonella outbreak that was linked to tuna scrape has people asking whether this product is fit for human consumption or not.

Seeing as how it's a common ingredient in some kinds of sushi, raw tuna scrape could pose a serious health risk.

Some food experts don't think there's enough research on tuna scrape to declare it safe. Others think it's so different from pink slime that it's not a fair comparison.

Tuna scrape, like pink slime, is pulled from the bones after all the meat has been taken. But pink slime goes through several other steps of processing.

It is cooked, spun in a centrifuge and then sprayed with ammonia.

Gross.

At least tuna scrape isn't treated like that but still, it's eaten raw and it's the leftovers that were stuck to the bones.

If you'd ask us, we'd say, "Hold the tuna scrape, please."

'Pink Slime' Controversy Changes How We Look At Our Food

Filed under: FoodHealth

gross-pink-sime-stuff.jpg

Ever since the whole "pink slime" controversy reared its disgusting head, consumers have begun to question their food more and more.

People no longer just walk into the grocery store, grab a pound of ground beef and walk out.

They pay for it first. LOLz!

But before they pay for it, they find out where the animal was raised, what that animal was fed, if there were any hormones or steroids used.

Even with produce, consumers want to know what sort of pesticides were used if any and if it comes from a local farm or is shipped in from out of state.

The director of the Downtown Farmers Market in Des Moines, Iowa said:

"There was a time when people were pretty complacent about their food and just trusted someone else was going to take care of them. The dialogue has changed a lot. Now people want to know who is growing their food."

We think this is a great trend. Making healthier choices is always a good decision.

It's nice to know that something good is coming out of this whole "pink slime" fiasco.

Accountability is probably the biggest change, now farmers have to realize that people are going to want to know exactly what they're doing.

And if no one likes what they're doing (pesticides, hormones, steroids, etc.) then people will stop buying and that farmer will have to change their strategy or else risk losing the farm.

Gotta keep the consumers happy. The customer is always right!
