Are You Eating Pink Slime Without Knowing It?

At least the USA government has been serving it up to America's school children since 2009.

According to the article below from The Blaze, supermarkets are allowed to put as much as 15% of pink slime into packaged hamburger without having to tell consumers that it is included in the meat.

Here is a picture of the goo:

And here are a couple of videos (which were included in the article) that explain what pink slime is.

Maybe it's safe to eat, who knows?

But I'm pretty pissed nobody told us.

I don't want to buy hamburger and get pink slime without knowing it.

Ewwwwwww...

Amazing corruption in the school lunch program...

Thank you Mrs. O'biwan for our slime burger with the healthy salad!

I was going to post this one also.

Sounds like a conspiracy theory.

There is nothing wrong with pink slime. If it tastes good, it is good. Don't matter where it came from. You don't need to know what is in it. Trust your government. Government is always trustworthy. No government ever in human history told a lie. Government is always 100% virtuous. Government is like a loving parent running your life for you. Who are you to decide for yourself what to eat? If you insist on deciding for yourself what to eat and on knowing what is in your food, you are a terrorist suspect and you deserve to be put in a FEMA concentration camp.

Who said health is a rational value? Is health something a rational person would act to gain and/or keep? No matter how healthy you are, you die anyway, so what good is health?

What if the government doesn't want you to be healthy? What if the medical profession would rather have you sick so they can make money out of you? What if the government wants you dead because you are overpopulating planet Earth? You are not entitled to make decisions about your own life.

Diet has nothing to do with health. The notion that diet affects your health is quackery, along with snake oil. There is nothing you can do to take care of your health. Your health is not your responsibility; it is your doctor's responsibility and your government's responsibility.

But even if you could take care of your own health, that would be unethical. We have it on the authority of Peikoff himself that health care is not a right. That means you have no right to take care of your own health by such things as diet and sleep and exercise and avoiding pink slime.

Honesty in labelling ingredients in food is not always a virtue. It depends on context. For example if they told you what is in pink slime, you wouldn't eat it. In order to get you to eat it, they are morally justified in being dishonest. Ferengi Rule of Acquisition 239: "Never be afraid to mislabel a product."

If you like fast food, you can rest assured that McDonald’s, Burger King, and Taco Bell do not use pink slime in their ground beef--er... since January 2012, that is.

Think about all those meals last year...

Dayaamm!

Jerry - LOL... That reminds me of an Internet marketing guru I study named Frank Kern. He always jokes that he knows a fact is true because he got it off the Internet.
