Your Children May Never Eat School Lunches Again
March 5, 2012 The Daily has a really unpleasant article about how the government is buying seven million pounds of a meat byproduct called "pink slime" (or perhaps, "soylent pink") for distribution to schools for school lunch programs. The scientists who first studied it for FDA strongly recommended against it, but there were business interests who wanted to sell dog food grade meat treated with ammonia (hence the color) to feed to our kids. For all Michelle Obama's concern with healthy eating for the children, it does not seem to extend to shutting off the money going to a Tyson Foods division.
