To me, it's not about what it is made of, or that it is treated with ammonia. It's about the realization that if we choose to eat processed foods, we don't have any way to know exactly what we are eating, because there is no requirement for full disclosure.

People in this country want cheap food and they want convenient food.

As a percentage of income, food expenditures are the lowest EVER, even including the massive increase in away-from-home meals. Part of this is a rise in affluence, but its also indicates a drop in actual costs.

To keep our food costs so low, processed foods (including restaurant supplies) must include the lowest cost ingredients. Many byproducts that were once used for animal feed or fertilizer are now "cleaned up" and used in human food manufacturing.

If you choose to, you can eat a natural, fresh, made-from-scratch diet with no unpleasant-to-contemplate food byproducts but you'll spend a lot more money at the grocery and farmers market and more time in the kitchen.

Cheap, quick and high quality don't actually go together in the food industry. Just my 2 cents.

Restaurants are starting to move in the "traceability" direction, you would hope our grocer shelves could be next.

Seafood has been working on "traceability" for awhile now.

If you think pink slime is bad you should have seen the tv show that was done on "what goes on in the kitchens of some restaurants" The guy who had a bad headcold and blew his nose in a big pot of soup he was making and the joker who peed in the coffee pot kept me out of restaurants for a long time.. Knew an older couple who said they dont eat out anymore because of the things that could go on in these kitchens. Oh yes the restaurant owners had a hidden camera installed so they could keep an eye on the help. These two jokers were immediately fired.

Maybe the KFC's, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell(I know, they use meat(?)) and Long John Silvers are behind this "burger bashing". Or at least won't mind fanning the fire.
Burgers have been one of the fastest growing niches of the restaurant business, and a lot of these burgers on the menu are not cheap.
Burgers are big business right now. Oh,and by the way, groups like PETA love when us meat eaters read stories in the news about our "tainted" meat supply.

Forget your local chain... this crap is going into our kids and grand-kids LUNCH at school!!!! This stuff was ORIGINALLY labeled "NOT for HUMAN CONSUMPTION" but some meat packing company was able to push it through to be approved. I would like to know what company it was and who they paid to get it through.

Fulling aware this story "started" with the school system. Just saying it won't and should not end there.
Can you say: food traceability. If we had it, then we would know the answer to your question of who permitted this to be served in the government school system.

But it is not just in the school system, which is bad as far as I'm concerned, it is in the local grocery stores, with exceptions. Not many exceptions.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

What bothers me more than the 'slime', is the growing trend by processors to 'nuke' our food instead of the use of sound sanitary practices. The nasties are all still in there...they're just dead. Yuck! Bob
