Pink slime for the children

Quote:
The US Department of Agriculture is purchasing 7 million pounds of ammonia-treated beef byproduct for use in its national school lunch program from Beef Products Inc. The so-called “Lean Beef Trimmings” is a ground combination of beef scraps, connective tissues and other “trimmings” that are treated with ammonium hydroxide.
The USDA has long used the substance for school lunches and, without including notice on its labels, has mixed it into ground beef. The government spends only three cents per pound less for ground beef cut with the ammoniated mixture.
The company and the government have insisted the ammonia is safe and effectively kills off salmonella and E.coli. Tests conducted between 2005 and 2009 found that pathogens were present in dozens of samples of the product, including two contaminated batches of 27,000 pounds of meat.
Two microbiologists, former Food Safety Inspection Service inspector Carl Custer and Gerald Zernstein, concluded in a recent study that the product was “not nutritionally equivalent” to ground beef and was “high risk.” McDonalds and other major fast-food restaurants have discontinued the use of the material, which resembles a pink slime.
“My objection to having it in the schools is that it’s not meat,” Custer told online publication thedaily.com. “It’s more like Jell-O than hamburger, plus it’s treated with ammonia, an additive that is not declared anywhere.”

Why is a federal agency even involved in school lunches which are provided by local schools? This is something that should really be entirely up to local school boards and school districts. The federal government doesn't want local school districts to run their own affairs, as evinced by the whole healthy school lunch debate raging currently, but then this is what they come up with. On one hand they tell us that they know what is better and want to mandate what schools serve Children for lunch, but then they give the children pink Ammonia slime. The arrogance of it all.

Nothing like a large, impersonal, bureaucracy, thousands of miles away to screw up a little Child's lunch.

Now, for the source of this article

One of my Economics professors said it best when he said that for socialists their solution is always the same no matter what the problem, more government power and control. But then what do you do when it is the government who is failing? The answer is the same. Give them more power and control.

I never questioned that, which should be obvious from my response. In fact, I have said several times on these forums that Marxists are often good at pointing out problems. Where they fall short is on workable solutions

Good thing they never suggested a workable solution in the article then...

I actually read the article wondering if they would, but they didn't.

Of course, I doubt very seriously they would have called for the removal of the federal government from local school lunches. All you ever need are more watchers for the watchers

Of course, Fox would have demanded a return to a more wholesome school lunch regimen...

What they really need is just one king sized candy bar. That would give them all the calories they needed for the whole school day

Ready to say goodbye to a sliver of your Snickers? And how about a slightly slimmer Mars bar? By the end of 2013, chocolate-maker Mars says all of its chocolate bars will be under — or right at — the 250-calorie mark.

Wonder who at the Dept of Commerce is pocketing the savings difference when beef scraps, normally used for dog food, is mixed in with the ground beef sold to the school lunch programs?

Sound likes the time during Clinton when cheaper strawberries from Mexico were being sold as domestic ones for school lunch and senior lunch programs and a major food poisoning outbreak occurred. Shortly afterwards, Secretary of Commerce, Ron Brown, was killed in an airplane crash with conflicting reports and a lot of questions left unanswered as to the cause. http://whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO...ROWN/brown.php

Obviously the savings are going into the coffers of the Great Shyster's campaign fund

Because the FDA is responsible for food consumed by the public, regardless of who provides it.
