A pink slime-ploration from Maya Hann-Byrd, BG Meat Correspondent:
In the food industry, March was the month of pink slime. Over the last month there has been a huge public outcry against this “lean, finely textured beef”. Within two weeks of starting an online petition to stop the use of pink slime in public schools, over 250,000 signatures were obtained. As it should be in a free market, businesses and the USDA have started to respond. Supermarkets and chains are no longer using this product and school lunches are on their way to be rid of it as well!
