Meals from McDonald's will no longer include "pink slime," an ammonium hydroxide solution used to kill bacteria.
The Oak Brook-based fast food chain said it would no longer use the controversial additive -- which is approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (http://www.foodinsight.org/Resources/Detail.aspx?topic=Questions_and_Answers_about_Ammo nium_Hydroxide_Use_in_Food_Production) -- in its hamburger recipe.
The company denied that its decision was influenced by a months-long campaign by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver (http://www.jamieoliver.com/us/foundation/jamies-food-revolution/home) to get ammonium-hydroxide-treated meats like chicken and beef out of the U.S. food supply. But it acknowledged this week that it had stopped using the unappetizing pink goo -- made from treating otherwise inedible scrap meat with the chemical -- several months ago, msnbc.com reported (http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/01/31/10282876-mcdonalds-drops-use-of-gooey-ammonia-based-pink-slime-in-hamburger-meat?chromedomain=vitals).
In fact, the company said the decision to get rid of the "slime" was made nearly a year ago.
"We are always reviewing and evolving our standards to ensure we continue to serve safe, high quality food to our customers," McDonald's said in a statement (http://www.aboutmcdonalds.com/mcd/newsroom/mcdonalds_statements_and_alerts/Discontinued_Use_of_Select_Lean_Beef_Trimmings.htm l).

Taco Bell and Burger King have also done away with the "slime."

then how are they going to kill the bacteria in their disgusting low-grade pharmaceutical-laden factory farm beef?

Ammonia might be the least dangerous ingredient in your McDonald's.

I don't fuck with fast food because it's gross, but about bi-monthly, I'm on my way home drunk as shit and don't feel like human interaction, I'll grab a bacon, beef n cheddar and some curly fries. I'm not proud of it, but whatever.

The International Business Times lists some other questionable chemicals showing up in our foods:


Propylene glycol: This chemical is very similar to ethylene glycol, a dangerous anti-freeze. This less-toxic cousin prevents products from becoming too solid. Some ice creams have this ingredient; otherwise you'd be eating ice.


Carmine: Commonly found in red food coloring, this chemical comes from crushed cochineal, small red beetles that burrow into cacti. Husks of the beetle are ground up and forms the basis for red coloring found in foods ranging from cranberry juice to M&Ms.


Shellac: Yes, this chemical used to finish wood products also gives some candies their sheen. It comes from the female Lac beetle.


L-cycsteine: This common dough enhancer comes from hair, feathers, hooves and bristles.


Lanolin (gum base): Next time you chew on gum, remember this. The goopiness of gum comes from lanolin, oils from sheep's wool that is also used for vitamin D3 supplements.


Silicon dioxide: Nothing weird about eating sand, right? This anti-caking agent is found in many foods including shredded cheese and fast food chili.



We are conditioned mentally to disconnect our food from the animal who was mindlessly abused to provide it, but the vibrational fields created by our food choices impact us profoundly whether we pretend to ignore them or not. -Will Tuttle

Watch out, Robbie. FMJ is pushing up hard.

Also, you're going to want to be real careful throwing on the grill, especially in kabob form, but if you do it right, it can be dope.

Or if you get a fat chunk of fresh ahi, and throw it on the grill for like 30 seconds, rotating it just to get the sear on the outside and leaving it raw in the middle, that shit is dope son
