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

Filed under: Icky Icky PooBusiness BlitzFood

kroger 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.

70% Of Grocery Store Ground Beef Contains Pink Slime!

Filed under: Food

70% of the ground beef available in grocery stores is made out of dog food. Okay, that's a slight exaggeration, but sadly, not by that much.

Earlier this week we told you about this disgusting "pink slime" stuff that was being mixed with meat and fed to kids in school lunches. The beef trimmings were once only legal in dog food and cooking oils, but then the USDA decided it's cool to mix with human food as long as it's treated with ammonia.

Well, this stuff just isn't being force fed to kids either, we're ALL eating it. An ABC News investigation has revealed that 70% of all ground beef found in grocery stories contains pink slime. So, essentially, we're eating what we used to consider dog food.

To make matters worse and 70% of ground beef 100% MORE unappetizing, the original term for pink slime was soylent pink. In case you've never seen the Charlton Heston movie, Soylent Green was made out of dead human beings.

Gerald Zirnstein, a former USDA scientist who coined the term, quit his job after his bosses approved its use in our beef and now grinds his own hamburger meat to avoid digesting the stuff. In an interview, he recalled that when he brought up the issue to former undersecretary of agriculture, Joann Smith, she simply responded that "it’s pink, therefore it’s meat."

She now works for the company that produces pink slime and has made millions of dollars as a result of her legalizing the use of the cheap excuse for real meat.

Don't ya just love how our government works? Check out the ABC News story above for all the details and get ready to go vegan! Ha!

David Beckham supermarket campaign

Out with the old, in with the new!

David Beckham has replaced Jamie Oliver as the face of UK supermarket chain Sainsbury’s for a reported $8 million!

Not a bad way for David to bring home some extra bacon to the Beckham's $165 million empire.

Joining Paralympic swimmer Ellie Simmonds, Beckham will be an ambassador for Sainsbury's Active Kids campaign and promote its sponsorship of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

As a father of four children, the L.A. Galaxy soccer player was impressed by the company's commitment to kid's health, explaining:

Eli Roth And Richard Kelly Team Up For Horror Flick!

Filed under: Film Flickers

eli-roth-and-richard-kelly-collaborating-on-horror-film

Having seen what these two minds are capable on their own, we are nervously excited for what they're going to come up with together!

Filmmaker Richard Kelly will reportedly be writing and directing a new horror film, along with Eli Roth producing, called Corpus Christi!

The flick is being described as a 'contemporary thriller' that will focus on "a mentally unstable Iraq war veteran…who forges a strange friendship with his boss…the wealthy and politically ambitious owner of a supermarket chain."

Strange plot for a horror flick! But we imagine it's going to become severely effed up pretty quickly!

Looking forward to seeing how this one develops!

Thoughts??

Grocery Store Responds To Elton John Magazine Controversy

harps-president-responds-to-elton-john-magazine-controversy

Well, at least SOME corrective action was taken.

In light of the disgraceful news yesterday that Arkansas supermarket chain Harps had censored the new issue of Us Weekly for showcasing Elton John, his husband David Furnish, and their baby son on its cover, the company's President Kim B. Eskew has issued the following statement:

We have received a number of comments regarding an incident in our Mountain Home store involving the current issue Us Weekly Magazine depicting Elton John, David Furnish and their newborn son. I would like to explain how this happened. For many years we have provided each of our stores with shields which can be used at the manager's discretion to cover the front of magazines when they receive complaints from our customers regarding either the photo on the cover of the magazine or the titles of articles contained within the magazine. Sometimes those photos might be sexually provocative or too revealing. The magazine article titles might also be too suggestive for some customers. In this case our store manager received some complaints, and as has been our custom, placed the shield over the cover of the magazine. When we began receiving complaints at our corporate office, we reviewed the magazine in question, removed the shield and are selling the magazine in all our locations today without any shield. Our true intention is not to offend anyone in our stores and this incident happened at just one of our 65 locations, which when brought to our attention, we reversed.

Kim B. Eskew
President & COO
Harps Food Stores, Inc.

Wow.

We don't know what's worse - that there is so much hate in the world that people couldn't even walk by a magazine cover featuring two homosexual men and their child - what should be a happy, joyous occasion - without freaking out, or that the manager was convinced enough by these complaints to consider the image 'too suggestive' for the world to see!

We appreciate that they've made the effort to correct this offensive and ignorant move, but frankly, we're still horrified that this even happened in the first place.

Grow up, America. The LGBT community is NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

Behold…The Fridge of The Future!

first look at the fridge of the future

Remember the days when fridges were only there to store your food? Okay, so we're still living in those days…but not for long!

Researchers in the UK are designing the Fridge of the Future, which will do so much more than just maintain the freshness of your leftovers and orange juice.

Here are some features of the fridge of the future:

- Self-cleaning

- Automatically places supermarket home delivery orders

- Moves nearly-expired food to the front of the shelves

- Offers user-tailored recipes

Wow! Can this fridge also give us a little electric shock if we try to grab some leftover chinese food?

If so, then we totally want one!
