Certainly not anything I want coming out of my kitchen, but not a threat to the continuing existence of humanity. We are made to burn a variety of fuels.

This is the tip of the iceberg for what consumers should know about the food they eat and how it's processed. It's a global problem, and with each bite we have a choice. The fact that this piece of information went viral and consumers demanded clean food just proves how powerful our dollars and decisions are. We have a long way to go, but I for one was happy to see this practice leaked and for consumers to avidly reject it.

Pink slime, as in any other "overly processed" food, is not my idea of food. In a world where so much effort is put into growing healthy food, pink slime does not reach the scale of edible. Eat the fat or throw it in the trash.

People need to take personal responsibility to inform themselves on what they eat, drink, etc., instead of relying on media headlines to influence it one way or another.
