No Pink Slime For You!

From USA Today:  ‘Pink slime’ maker halts production at some plants

“The low-cost ingredient is made from fatty bits of meat left over from other cuts. The bits are heated and spun to remove most of the fat. The lean mix then is compressed into blocks for use in ground meat. The product is exposed to ammonium hydroxide gas to kill bacteria, such as E. coli and salmonella.”

That processing just sounds terrible.  Bleh.  I like my meat from Durham Farmers Martket…fresh off the farm!  :oP
