I am sure they were not the only ones. Besides that if you eat that kind of food it isn't good for you any way. I don't eat burgers from there. if I want a burger I make my own out of lean beef. Tastes better and it more healthy. I am just saying the media always blows things way out of proportion to get people a wound up about things. And I doubt it is going to effect most of the people who eat at fast food places.

Do you trust someone who thought that was OK in the first place?

My daughter is a manager there and she said that that was stopped a very long time ago. It doesn't matter anyway. People are always going to eat there and they will never go out of business!!!!

On a related note, this was on my StartPage today:

I saw Jamie Oliver making his version of those type of burgers for school children in America on tv once and they still wanted to eat it even after he showed them what was in it.

I don't eat much red meat anymore and avoid things like McDonald's and other fast food places much to my son's dismay.

Well, if you're going to eat meat that probably came into contact with the gut contents, it does need to be thoroughly cleaned. I just wish that processes required labeling. (Meat glue is the really scary one.)

Don't care much. I doubt that cheap hamburgers are ever going to be part of my normal diet.

They may no longer use pink slime but what else are they using?

Don't eat there and have not done almost a decade- unimportant information to me.. Anything with that name label is crap anyway...

Wow, although I am not surprised. Even more of a reason to not eat fast food.

And... that's why I don't eat that crap anymore. It doesn't even qualify as food, as far as I'm concerned.

To be perfectly honest, the fact that they used the substance doesn't freak me out as much as the meat itself, since it was used for it's anti-microbial properties. Are they using something different, or improving the quality of their meat? I don't want to eat the slime, but I don't want to eat any meat that *requires* the slime to be edible, either.

That particular picture has been making the rounds on the internet for quite a few years (I first saw it in a discussion about chicken nuggets), and it could be that they just got tired of the bad press. On that note, are they eliminating the substance from *all* their food, or just their "beef?"

This sort of thing is a good reminder of one of the many reasons I prefer not to eat fast food.
