  •  "pink slime" (0+ / 0-)

    As far as I know, there's little actual ammonia in finely textured lean beef trimmings.  The ammonia is used -- and only in some cases, I hasten to point out -- to kill pathogens, but I believe it is drained off or evaporated.

    Honestly, what's the big deal about the stuff?  It's using trimmings that would not otherwise get used, and it's perfectly edible.
