#PinkSLIME is making a comeback. Remember the news reports about “pink slime” a few years ago? If you eat meat, listen up so you’ll know how to answer when you’re asked, “Where’s the beef?” Back in #2012, an #ABCNews report claimed that some 70% of ground beef sold in supermarkets had the pink slime additive. The story played out on social media and created a hostile environment for manufacturers of pink slime. The outcry was so effective that it practically shut down production of the dreaded pink slime. But that's about to change... Here's why pink slime is making a comeback. Technically, pink slime is defined by Wikipedia as “low-grade beef trimmings and other meat by-products such as cartilage, connective tissue, and sinew.” It is used as a filler or to lower the fat content of beef. Part of the processing involves spraying the trimmings with ammonia or citric acid to kill bacteria, according to The Wall Street Journal. Today, pink slime is making a return as beef prices are skyrocketing.
