Another place to go is here; snopes.com: Mechanically Separated Chicken

I have watched a lot of these shows on TV and have learned that they aren't always up to date on their reporting.I hate it when the DW watches shows like Oprah,Dr oz and some of those that say that they are the only learned information of the air.Every time she sees some of these real scare stuff,I'll head for Snopes and show her what's there,but she'll believe what the supposed experts say. It's kind of like a lot of these so-called business experts that write a book and go out selling it. If they're so good why aren't they running their own business.

Personally, I'd shy away from hot dogs as well as the fast food hamburgers.'

I drove semi for years and saw things you wouldn't believe. At the Mars plant there were fly zappers over the vats of chocolate dropping fly's right into the vats. I asked about this and a supervisor said it was county health code that they had to have them because as we all know government knows best and you wouldn't want live flys hanging around your food. Crazy... Enjoy those Mars bars and milky ways!

Pink Slime? Hey, the FDA says it's OK, and they are the gubbamint. Kan't argue wit the gubbamint.

Funny that they refused to be interviewed by ABC news.

Maybe the FDA should have been third on Rick Perry's list.

There are many ways to cook burgers, Some folks like them casually introduced to the fire. I like mine to get downright intimate with the fire. (Well done)

Ammonia, if it's sprayed on, has a very low vapor temp, if it's cooked, any ammonia remaining on the meat will be burned off. Any other nasty stuff won't survive "Well Done" (it might blood rare). Thus, I don't worry about it, I just make sure the internal temp hits at LEAST 180 degrees.

Now I know why I liked dog food as a kid. Too bad it's hard to make into a patty.

Who would even think of sweeping up the cutting room floor and putting the dust pan full of trimmings into the grinder? I'm thinking that this is "internet fodder". Can't believe all that you read on the 'net.

No, I'm not well versed on EVERY single event going on in America, and like you, I don't take well to watching the news, but probably not for the same reasons as you. But then that is individuality. However, I do have a significant other, and it is when I hear, "Did you see that?" I hit the rewind to see what she may be talking about. Sometimes the National News is on in the background and something will catch my fancy.

I meant you no disrespect sir. In you first post you stated that it was Internet fodder, and not to believe everything that is read. It was explained in subsequent posts that it was not Internet fodder. A simple "Google" search would have revealed all the information on the subject, and since all the information on Pink Slime is as has been stated, fodder doesn't even come into the question.

I would not even consider you to be "ignorant," but misinformed or uninformed, but to make a broad statement the Internet is fodder, well, then this post is just fodder also.

Sorry! I don't mean to get personal. Sometimes things just rub people wrong, and the biggest problem with posting is not being able to see the body language, smiles, or gestures that ease the sting.

Here is another ABC article on Pink Slime

And "It's sort of like Play doh."

I spent four years in the Navy.

Who knows what I ate in there.

We used to call some of the stuff mystery meat.

Two years aboard ship as a Marine Communicator, and SOS had a new meaning.

What I really want to know is where the meat (and all our other foods) come from. Food products are largely exempted from the source labeling laws, and I think that needs to stop. Wouldn't you like to know where your steaks came from? Your orange juice? Your chips? (I used to carry truckloads of corn chips into the US that were made in Mexico.)

Which, by the way, is also edible.

I know the hamburgers at McDonalds, for example, are made from real meat. I've carried many truckloads of it. Of course, it is "trimmings," which is to say, stuff left over after most of the identifiable parts are cut up. What...you didn't think they were grinding up rib eye steaks to make hamburgers, did you?

My guess is the "pink slime" is probably safer than, oh, say, "head cheese," and other parts that farmers used to include in their determination to use up "every part but the squeal or moo."

Yes, it is edible.

However, it is like the way this goes. (Answer to yourself)

"Do you eat cow's tongue?" (The majority of people you ask this question of will answer "No."

"Why, is it the thought of where it comes from?" (The majority of people will say "Yes."

"Do you eat eggs?" (Most people do.)

I know that eggs have a shell, but still, where do they come from? A chicken's butt.
