What percentage of ground beef contains ammonia?



  1. 0 Votes

    A company called Beef Products, Inc. in South Dakota is a major provider to the beef industry.  Their ground beef is given the pet name “pink slime” and is found in 70 percent of America’s burgers.  “Pink slime” is made cheaply by collecting the lowest quality scraps of fatty tissue from the floors of slaughterhouses, grinding them with a machine that separates out the fat, and then treating the beef with a large amount of ammonia for sterilization purposes, so that they can offer a product that’s free of pathogens.  Fast-food chains and school cafeterias that serve hamburgers mix “pink slime” with regular ground beef to save money – the mixture averages to 15 percent “pink slime”.
