#1 Does your grocer sell pink slime in the hamburger meat?03-16-2012, 12:36 PM
“Pink slime” results from grinding together connective tissue and beef scraps normally used to make dog food or for rendering (that would be fat to make lard). The grindings are then treated with ammonia hydroxide, which kills pathogens such as E coli and salmonella. The term pink slime was first coined by microbiologist Gerald Zirnstein in 2002.
It is estimated that up to 70% of the nation’s grocery stores’ ground beef contains pink slime.
