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.

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?
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.
