Pink slime is back. The ammonia-treated beef additive made from grinding together unused scraps of beef and connective tissue is starting to make a major comeback, with sales up three-fold since 2012.

I thought we were rid of Pink Slime. If the package of ground beef you are buying says "lean finely textured beef", it contains Pink Slime. Please sign the petition urging the USDA to make sure Pink Slime is labeled.

Gladly signed & Tweeted. I followed this issue and posted articles about this before "pink slime" was taken off the shelves. I posted an article a couple of months ago when word came out about "pink slime" making a comeback:

'Pink Slime' Is Making A Comeback. Do You Have A Beef With That?

Thanks for posting this petition, Krista. It's especially important that this product be kept out of school lunchrooms.

Gladly signed and noted. Thanks, Krista. Talk about seriously gross! The ammonia additive alone should automatically disqualify this slop for consumption by all Earthlings! Ugh!

Noted Krista. Signed through email earlier today. This is disgusting. I have signed & shared so many petitions and articles about this issue. Not just kids...this shouldn't be in anyone's food.
Yet another reason we need food manufacturers to clearly & honestly label our food. Too many vague labels...we have a right to know everything that's in ALL of our food, not just meat.

A member that lives in the U.K. said this petition would not accept his postcode. If you have a problem trying to sign this very important petition, you may use my zip code - 48320 or the White House's zip code which is 20500. I believe all food should be label with every ingredient in it so we, as consumers, can make an informed decision on whether or not we want to purchase that product.

This form of mechanically recovered 'meat' should be banned in all countries of the world. It used to be sold in volume in the UK for food production and the chicken version was used to make chicken nuggets.

This is totally obnoxious and should be made illegal forthwith. Why should the unsuspecting public citizens be sold this rubbish so unscrupulous human beings can make a greedy profit at the public's expense? So deceitful indeed and immoral too boot. I'm so disappointed at how low businesses will stoop to sell rubbish meat for top quality meat, stuck together with meat glue which apparently is made of blood and goodness knows what else. Petition signed, thank you to all who sent link my way.

Guess laws and regulations were made to be broken as well as ignored and overruled. Wonder how long it would still be served if those that made it and those that sell it were forced to eat it?

There is also a petition on Care2 regarding pink slime
Out! Out! Pink Slime

Really, the use of pink slime should not surprise anyone . . . why? . . . it is like a meat extender making the higher cost meat go further! Plus, it means there is less "waste" from the animals. It's all about profits, like usual.

This is a horrendous fraud perpetrated on the American public, and I think we are all getting sick and tired of it.
George Bush set a climate of hierarchy for Big Business and it will take quite a while to get rid of it, as long as we don't elect a Teapublican to the White House.

Sadly noted and Signed. Thank you, Krista for posting. Thank you, Ted for sharing. Looks like the American public has been lied to, once again - risking everyone's health, including children, IF parents are unaware... as many of us have been. But, now we know. It needs more exposure though. It's the industry's "dirty little secret" but not for long - WE will fight this. Hopefully, more and more people will realize what's going on and STOP allowing those who just want to 'make a buck' from doing so. The ball is in OUR court now...

But even if the choice is to continue eating fmeat - and meat products - they should at least be aware of what it contains and not duped. Absolutely scandalous. Thanks Krista. YOLO
