Coming to a caf near you: pink slime school lunch

 

 

Even though both McDonald’s and Taco Bell have banned it from their franchises (and the U.K. has outlawed it all together), the USDA has decided to serve 7 million pounds of so-called “pink slime”—ground connective tissue and meat scraps that have been treated by ammonium hydroxide—to school kids across the U.S.

 

Yeah, not so yummy.

 

These “lean beef trimmings” have been labeled high-risk, Yahoo.com reports. Aside from safety concerns, Gerald Zirnstein, a microbiologist and former member of the USDA Food Safety Inspective Service, says, “It was not nutritionally equivalent [to ground beef]. My main object was that it was not meat.” 

 

Um. Ew.

Update - 3/22/2012
Good news, girlies! Pink slime is on its way out. Several school districts (including NYC and Miami-Dade County in FL) will be phasing it out. Supermarket chains (including Safeway, Acme, Kroger, Shop 'n' Save, Genuardi's and Food Lion) will be selling through their current stock and then eliminating it from their stores. While many schools are reporting that they're having difficulty finding pink slime-free ground beef through their suppliers, things are definitely looking up! Get more updates at cbsnews.com.

Would you rather hang with friends than find time to exercise? Why not combine the two and get a bunch of friends to go on a walk or bike ride around town. 
 
You let her BFF borrow your fave top for a party last Saturday but when she returns it, it looks nothing like the top you remember buying. It has holes, stains and only one shoulder. What do you say to your gal pal?
