About Us...

Exposing the lies and seeking truth doesn't = Hate. This is not a Kate Hate Site. A 'Kate Hate Site" wouldn't have "Shame on Kate AND Shame on Jon" in the reaction box.

Just a place where bloggers and commenters can share an open discussion on all things related to the Gosselins.

This blog was created to expose the spins and lies shared by the media and by several individuals who continue to spread filth and garbage for their own self-interests.

This blog will expose those who continue to spread lies as "truth" and those who base their beliefs and support for one individual based on those lies.

70 Percent of Ground Beef at Supermarkets Contains ‘Pink Slime’

Gerald Zirnstein grinds his own hamburger these days. Why? Because this former United States Department of Agriculture scientist and, now, whistleblower, knows that 70 percent of the ground beef we buy at the supermarket contains something he calls “pink slime.”

“Pink slime” is beef trimmings. Once only used in dog food and cooking oil, the trimmings are now sprayed with ammonia so they are safe to eat and added to most ground beef as a cheaper filler.

The “pink slime” is made by gathering waste trimmings, simmering them at low heat so the fat separates easily from the muscle, and spinning the trimmings using a centrifuge to complete the separation. Next, the mixture is sent through pipes where it is sprayed with ammonia gas to kill bacteria. The process is completed by packaging the meat into bricks. Then, it is frozen and shipped to grocery stores and meat packers, where it is added to most ground beef.

Ewwwwww...that's gross! Is there anything to eat anymore that's not been fucked with? I don't even trust anything that's called 'organic' anymore either. The ground is contaminated too. No wonder the Pharmacuticals are reaping big profits selling Adhd meds and such for our kids. Wonder what the CEO's of these companies eat! They know what's going on in the food industry.

Received my meat grinder yesterday. Going to start making my own hamburger because this pink slime is just nasty.

Sad that the government thinks this is OK and even worse that it is serving it to our kids in school!
