  • How to Avoid Pink Slime
    Of course, you could avoid meat all together, but for folks that aren’t quite ready to take the leap, there are some things you can do.
    Avoiding fast food burgers is a good start, since BPI uses the additive in ground beef for the fast food industry. Hotel and restaurant food isn’t necessarily slime-free though. Your best bet is to stick with local ground beef from a farmer you know and trust.

    This is more info than I wanted to know about meat. LOLOL

  • Fake crap mixed into ground beef.

  • Pink slime is an additive in 70% of the ground beef in the U.S., which means that if you’re eating a burger, there’s a good chance you’re getting a dose of the stuff. Pink slime isn’t just in U.S. ground beef, though. BPI deals with other countries as well. Not only that, they’re looking to expand their market share, stating that their: ultimate goal is to have our products incorporated in all ground beef and other further processed meats produced in the United States. Our products can also be found in Canada, Mexico, and Japan with expansion plans for Central America, Europe, and Pacific Rim countries.
