|It DOES look like dogfood!|
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The lunch lady won't be serving up "pink slime" anymore at several school districts around the country.
Under a change announced Thursday by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, districts that get food through the government's school lunch program will be allowed to say no to ground beef containing an ammonia-treated filler derisively called "pink slime" and choose filler-free meat instead.
And if you don't want it at the grocery store, ask for GROUND CHUCK or GROUND ROUND, not GROUND BEEF. Ask your butcher or buy Chuck or Round and have him grind it up for you. Or buy 'kosher' beef which can only come from certain parts of healthy cows.
On a happier note, everything GOOD you wanted to know about food....
