I have to tell you guys I had never heard of it before I started clicking some of the links that you guys sent to me. Now, I wish I had never found out as it makes me just nauseous to think about!
Warning…if you are squeamish – skip past this paragraph! Pink slime is a meat byproduct where otherwise unusable cuts are mixed with ammonium hydroxide in a centrifuge to produce food for humans. According to an article from abc news, this cheap meat filler, is in 70 percent of the ground beef sold at supermarkets and up to 25 percent of each American hamburger patty, by some estimates.
I have good news for all of us who shop at Publix. Publix does NOT use pink slime in their ground beef. Yet another reason why I Heart Publix :D
