It is a waste product of beef, things like trimmings, not even the muscle but other parts that they have scraped off the bone no one else wants and the stuff we won’t eat.
I read that 70% of grocery store ground beef has it in it and it is sold as “Boneless Lean Beef.”
It is a low value waste product that used be found in your pets food about a decade ago, but now, now it seems that it is going in our children’s mouths. This really bothers me as a mother. I want only the best for my children as I am sure you do for yours. Why? Why I wonder did they even think to put it in our food? So McDonald's and Taco Bell apparently quit using this stuff and now they decided to put it in our children’s public school lunches, probably to safe a buck or two.
But this is just morally wrong. I don’t care who you are if you see the video of this stuff, what it is and how it is made you won’t want to eat it. You won’t want to trust anyone anymore unless they can guarantee they are not putting it in their ground beef. I am kind of angry when I have posted deals before of supermarket sales on ground beef, now I wonder. Did I post a deal about ground beef that had pink slime in it? Oh that just makes me cringe. I also want to just about lose my lunch thinking of maybe I fed this stuff unknowingly to my family! Ugh!
Saving money for me has always been weighing out my options to find the best deal. So I used to figure the cost of school lunches for my children and then figure the cost of me packing their lunch. But the major factor still has to been the well-being of my children.
My older kids used to get the lunches at school but that was over 10 years ago and I am hoping that this stuff was never in there. It was more economical to get school lunches than it was for me to make them at home. Now I am not so sure it would be a wise choice.
Do you really want you children to eat this? Do we want to buy this stuff at your grocery store and eat it as your family burger? Not so all American BBQ to me any more if that is what we are getting.
Mom’s we are the buyers, we are really the ones that control what goes into our family’s mouths and that will get the attention of the food industry if you and I choose to take a stand. Read more at Saving Your Green...
