Exposure Sends The Cockroaches Scurrying

You'll notice "cessation of use" isn't in the near future.

'Pink slime' beef production put on hold




"A US company that makes a beef product often referred to as "pink slime" is suspending production at three of four plants amid concern about the product.

Beef Products Inc said it hopes business will return once fears about the product die down.

Officially known as "lean, finely textured beef", so-called "pink slime" is made from left-over cuts and is up to 97% beef, a spokesman said.

US schools have been allowed to stop serving the food at mealtimes.

"We feel like when people can start to understand the truth and reality then our business will come back," Beef Products spokesman Chris Letch said.

Federal regulators say the beef ingredient meets food safety standards, but critics say the food is unappetising and possibly unsafe.

The beef is heated and spun in a centrifuge to separate the meat from the fat, before the final product is treated with a puff of ammonium hydroxide gas to kill any bacteria.

Earlier this month a social media campaign against the use of the food was followed by an announcement by the US agriculture department that schools would be allowed to choose alternative beef supplies.

Some school districts and retailers have already chosen to stop using it.

The three Beef Products Inc plants being wound down are located in Amarillo, Texas; Garden City, Kansas; and Waterloo, Iowa. Together they produce about 900,000lb (408,000kg) of the beef product per day, the company says."

Do you grasp the propaganda here? "Puff of ammonium hydroxide" "Beef product".
This is killer poison, passed off as something normal in food supply, that greatly enhances corporate profits by fucking you up. "Spare trimmings of beef" is a euphemism for inedible, not-fit-for-human-consumption crap that's mixed in with legitimate ground flesh after being doused with poisonous chemicals to render it less harmful.
Reason why it's doused? It's disgusting parts of the animal most likely to harbor pathogens.
Have it your way. Bon Appetit.

BPI has a long history of producing safe and nutritious lean beef that has never been traced to a single illness in over 300 billion meals that have used their product. BPI has always strived to provide a product that is safe and will not harm the consumer. The trim that BPI makes its products from is just pieces of meat that are trimmed from the cow when steaks and roasts are cut. The trim is USDA inspected quality meat and does not test positive for e coli. The company only uses the ammonia to raise the PH level of the product in order to make sure it is safe because ground beef is generally susceptible to pathogens. Make sure you know what you are talking about before you try to spread lies!

Lies? You anonymous corporate shill.
Beef trim?
Explain. But you won't, because you can't without exposing the reality of this poisonous, ugly scam.

Beef trim is just that, trimmings that are cut off of a cow when roasts and steaks are cut. These pieces of trim contains fat and muscle. Heat is then applied and the fat is melted off and sold as tallow while the muscle that is now separated is the product that BPI creates. The meat is put through a small amount of ammonia gas to raise the pH to a level that e coli can not thrive in. It is as simple as that. It is the same way all ground beef is made, from scraps of meat, BPI has just found a way to make it more lean by removing the fat and safer by increasing the PH level. Those are the facts! Why are you so concerned with this product when things like hot dogs and sausages actually uses things like skin and intestines that have tested positive for e coli but since the manufacturer of those products cook them to a high enough temperate to kill the pathogens the USDA says it is okay for them to use this material in their products?

"This product"
Yes of course, there's all kinds of other garbage in processed meat, like:
Calcium Hypochlorite (used to bleach cotton and clean swimming pools)
Hypobromous acid (used as a germicide in hot tubs)
Chlorine dioxide (used to bleach wood pulp)
Sodium hypochlorite‬ (known as bleach, or Clorox)
Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) (used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, jet fuels, rubber, petroleum products, electrical transformer oil, and embalming fluid
None of which should be in the foods we eat. Just because this crap is included in no way excuses more crap to be added.

But of course, one might ask, why have countries like the UK and Canada banned slime from supermarket shelves? I would suggest their more enlightened understanding supercedes the dominant corporate bludgeon in the US.
What the hey, let's make excuses to feed animals to animals also. Ammonia is a vitamin. Waste scrap is good for you.

Did you see that today ground beef was recalled in the United States today due to E coli and do you know where that product came from? Canada. maybe other countries should start using beef products that are treated with ammonia so that these types of outbreaks don't happen!
