US government buys 7 million pounds of 'pink slime' for America's children.

Pink slime is when they take all the cow parts left over after everything usable has been removed from a cow, grind it up, sterilize it with ammonium hydroxide (which may not work), then shape it into burgers and other food-like products.

Pink slime is so nasty and controversial even McDonald's, Burger King and Taco Bell have stopped using it. But a new report says the US government is buying 7 million pounds of it to feed to America's school children.
