Now supermarkets are banning 'pink slime.'

After public revulsion over recent stories about the use of "pink slime" in school lunches, three major grocery store chains have announced bans on the filler. Supervalu, the Food Lion and Safeway have all announced bans.

According to Mary Jane's Farm, "pink slime" is "rejected fat, sinew, bloody effluvia, and occasional bits of meat cut from carcasses in the slaughterhouse.... a low-value waste product called 'trimmings' that were sold primarily as pet food" but have in recent years found their way into ground beef and other human foods. Ammonia is added to kill the bacteria.
