7:10 p.m. CST, March 9, 2012
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Department of Agriculture is defending the use of ammonium-treated beef, dubbed "pink slime" by detractors, in meals destined for schoolchildren as part of the national school lunch program.
The Internet news source The Daily reported this week that 7 million pounds (3.2 million kg) of the product -- beef trimmings treated partly with ammonium hydroxide to fight contamination -- would appear in school lunches this spring.

You will obey me while I lead you
And eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that we don’t need you
Don’t go for help...no one will heed you
Your mind is totally controlled
It has been stuffed into my mold
And you will do as you are told
Until the rights to you are sold
Frank Zappa - I’m the Slime
I liked “Soylent Pink” as the name for it!
Neal Boortz had this on his show last week..I could barely stomach listening...
but a peanut butter and jelly or cheese sandwich and apple packed by Mom is illegal. Good God!
I remember once my Mom packed a Liederkranze cheese sandwich for me for school lunch..wow! did I ever get teased.Liederkranz smells like Limburger chees.ha.
Somehow, I survied this traumatic childhood event!
Cafeteria burritos were awesome, likewise pizza on alternate Thursdays.
That's all there is to it.
Nobody else would buy it......
The U.S. Government defends the Use of Pink slime in schools!Then maybe they should be the first to consume it on a daily basis.Instead of going about and buying all of the prime cuts that the first muslim consumes.
Thankfully, our children are grown.
There is no way in hell that I would allow my kids to eat this muck or mandate ANY of what my child may or may not eat.
Let them eat.....pink slim.
I’d probably make a batch of them and bring them to congress....and make the bas***** eat them. Our children are being forced to eat them!!!
The authorities not only support pink slime but also support HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) through subsidies while regular cane sugar is discouraged through tariffs, taxes and penalties.
I can go one better. My mother used to pack schmaltz sandwiches. Schmaltz is rendered chicken fat. We spread it on Wonder Bread and it was beyond delicious. For a real treat I got chopped chicken liver....yum! By the way, my cholesterol is perfect.
I was told by my most intelligent know-all, other half that this has been going on for years. Can you say hotdogs, deli meats, Spam, etc.
I buy meat that is in one piece and then I say a little prayer. :>)
Hey, I’ve got an idea!
Let’s put the US federal government in charge of all of our healthcares!
Feed it to The Moose. See how she likes it.
They will confiscate your childs bag lunch and give them industrial slime to eat. nice.
LOL! Klingon Pit BBQ.
