Xai: why is it that they can't just put 'mechanically separated beef product' or something in the ingredients and people who don't want to eat it won't.
adenosine: I don't think there is any way they could get this to stick. The information I read wasn't so much to tell you about how the product was unsafe for human consumption, but rather that how it was disgusting for humans to eat it.
max_pooper: The whole pink slime thing was just sensationalism. I never understood the aversion to "pink slime" or lean finely textured beef. There is certainly nothing unhealthy about beef that is ground down into a paste.
max_pooper: How appetizing does artificially coagulated bovine mamillary secretions sound?

Saiga410: There is certainly nothing unhealthy about beef that is ground down into a paste You do it with a duck liver it is considered a delicacy. You do it with beef it is a heresy.
Smackledorfer: I would still eat it after a blind taste testing to confirm I couldn't tell.
relaxitsjustme: If only I could come up with a good adjective to describe the company's lawyers...
Sergeant Grumbles: Smackledorfer: I would still eat it after a blind taste testing to confirm I couldn't tell.I think most people would still be fine with it. Most people are fine with mechanically separated chicken for nuggets.What most people probably have a problem with is this company won't disclose their practices, and the pink slime makes its way into food without consumers' knowledge.
jso2897: Streisand Effect commencing in 5, 4, 3, 2..............
nmemkha: When they want to call their products "fresh or natural", its just puffery; but, when someone actually presents a realistic description, its a lawsuit."Technically correct" slimeball lawyers are why we can't have nice things.
The My Little Pony Killer: Xai: why is it that they can't just put 'mechanically separated beef product' or something in the ingredients and people who don't want to eat it won't.Because if they label their products, then people might not want to eat it because 'mechanically separated beef product' sounds absolutely disgusting and it's not their fault their product is so disgusting. Gosh. Therefore, they have the right to withhold information from consumers. Or something.
