marcia cross prostate cancer awareness psa

The Safeway Foundation and Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) have enlisted Ambassador Marcia Cross to get their prostate cancer information across — by developing a print, radio and digital public service announcement (above)!

As with most PSAs, this one is designed to increase awareness. This time it's for the fight against prostate cancer, which currently affects more than two million American men. One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. It's #2 on the leading causes of cancer deaths in men!

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

Filed under: Icky Icky PooBusiness BlitzFood

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.

Giant Supermarket Chain Stops Selling Pink Slime

Filed under: Food

Hooray for Safeway!

One of North America's largest supermarket chains is calling it quitting time for pink slime. Safeway Inc, which is the company behind brands like Vons, Pavillions, and Genuardi's, has ceased the sale of any beef products containing the ammonia soaked meat filler (that was at one time only approved for use in dog food)!

We couldn't be happier to hear the news because earlier this month we learned that 70% of all ground beef sold at grocery stores contains this stomach-churning ingredient.

Check out the video above for all the details on Safeway's safe and SMART decision.

Let's hope MORE grocery stores follow their example so the beef companies have no choice but to remove pink slime from the production line! Until then, we know where we'll be getting our hamburger meat!
