“Pink Slime” is what they call it, the more fancy term would be Ammonium Hydroxide. This “lean finely textured beef” can be found in products such as retail ground beef, low fat hot dogs, lunch meats, frozen entrees and canned food.

The “Pink Slime” has been taking a lot of heat lately from concerned parents and beef eaters. After finding out it was being used in her kids school meals a Houston mother stared a petition to get the slime removed, she got over 250,000 signatures.

With slams from the media about how bad and nasty this product is McDonalds, who has been using this product for a long time in there burgers and chicken nuggets announced in December they will no longer be using it in their products. Taco Bell and Burger King made the announcement that they will no longer be using it also.

With that being said, Beef Products Inc. in Amarillo has closed their plant for the time being. With the closing of the plant 200 employees will be without a job. They will still be paid for 60 days and receive benefits until they can find another job. Along with the Amarillo, two other plants were closed putting more than 600 employees all together out of work.
