    Good that the USDA staffers were also named in the suit.  They’re thet ones who coined this travesty.

    “To call a food product slime is the most pejorative term that could be imagined.”
    Actually, I can think of several more pejorative terms, most of which disqus won’t let me use, but crap is acceptable I guess–as is garbage and poison…….

      Except LFTB is not “garfbage” or “poison”.  It’s leaner and safer than most ground beef.

        It really isn’t but that’s ok.  Having to use ammonia to kill off bacteria to make leftover beef waste “safe” does not make it safer than ground beef.  Any bacteria that is not killed off in the ammonia bath will just reproduce again.

    Golly!
    I was taught in school that everything I eat comes from the grocery store.

    We wouldn’t want to infringe on the billions in profits made by an outfit pushing “lean finely textured beef” that is actually a slurry of fat trimmings sprayed with ammonia. Sounds slimy and unsafe to me.

    This is just a ploy being used by the food industry against the news media or anyone else that is willing to report the truth by investigative reporting. I want the news media to be able to use the first amendment right and inform me as to what is going on.
