McDonald's, Taco Bell, and Burger King just stopped using "pink slime" in their burger meat.

McDonald's, Taco Bell, and Burger King just stopped using a product popularly known as "pink slime " in their burger meat. The "slime" comes from the tiny bits of beef in leftover fatty trimming. Those bits are doused with ammonia in order to kill E. coli and are then made into human food. Or “human” “food.” The resulting "meat" isn't necessarily unsafe -- in fact, industry people are bitching about how food activists are making them reduce food safety, to which we say if your meat needs to be doused with ammonia to make it safe to eat then maybe you have bigger problems than food activists. But it’s super-gross -- I don’t want a product nicknamed “slime” getting in my mouth unless I’m on a Nickelodeon show. So now fast food will be a teeny, tiny bit less gross!
