Such a great idea to kill animals, waste MORE product(aka, yes, landfill!) AND waste more of their meat, for the sake of our nit-picking! Guess what, all of you have been eating this for the past 30 years and if you're reading this, I'm pretty sure you are FINE. There's a lot of gross stuff in food regardless; make it yourself or don't expect someone else to make a gourmet meal for you, okay? Meat is disgusting. It truly is, so why is something off the floor disgusting? They were killed...

There's a lot of gross stuff in food regardless; make it yourself or don't expect someone else to make a gourmet meal for you, okay? Meat is disgusting. It truly is, so why is something off the floor disgusting? They were killed there, it could easily contaminate the food regardless if they add pink slime or not.... I ate a bagel I dropped on the floor the other day. I didn't die. If I constantly ate stuff off the ground and I felt fine, I would continue doing it(aka if pink slime has been in the food, and it hasn't effected you, why bother?)
Eat raw, or don't complain, basically is the point of this. We're such a wasteful species with no clue on how to conserve. If I still ate meat, I would gladly eat it off the ground. I would use each and every piece of that animal or at the very least use it as fertilizer, because it is disrespectful to KILL something and let it go to waste. But hey, that's our entitled selves, isn't it?
Eat organic, dumbasses.
yuck and I shop at glant.
sign me in. I am a vegetarian, things like this made me think about meat, and I changed, I do not miss it at all.
Ask to Department Health Service to call to you.
need to remove meat all together from the stores.
I've pretty much come to the conclusion to ba a vegetarian. Now everytime I think of meat I think of "pink slime".
sorry this was so negative- I just hate people complaining about stuff that they could easily fix by going organic, and due to this, they are not only making the companies suffer but also letting things go to waste that were actually used before. It really upsets me seeing things being wasted, especially a life.
This is a good start. Thanx. Let's hope this lil pebble turns into a mudslide :0)
Hey I buy my meat from Fresh Approach, no pink slime there ;p
woo! see, alternatives and it still allows the animals to be fully used.
support your local butcher, if you need meat, forget about supermarket "food".Shop local or ultimately, go vegan.
And where do you find butcher shops anymore?
Well said Heather. Please support your local small businesses. This is the key.
Daniel J Buss They are everywhere, if you care to look.
Erenler Aytac I remember when I was overseas in Panama, they had the beef freshly cut, totally kosher, in front of you. I wish farmers could get that support here, its so wierd being here in Iowa now, and farms allll around, but food is imported in the grocery stores...I guess from the documentaries and Monsanto over here, these poor farmers have to sell out/contract with them in order to make a decent profit. There are soooo many preservatives in the store bought foods and this stuff too :(
Daniel J Buss Here in South Africa we have hundreds of butcheries.I am happy to say.
Supermarket "food" is really slop, even unfit for animals. Even my pups eat organic whole foods.
You can go vegan, but there are those fruits and vegetables that can also contain contaminents that can make you sick. For instance lettuce, cantalopes, bags of salads, only to name a few. We really have to stay on top of things, or the government to get more strict on our products.
Erenler Aytac I personally think the wealth must be distributed in as much pieces as possible anyway. Please even for small shopping, always stop by your local markets. Big chains are only making few rich.
Remove the meat, fullstop! Its high consumption is destroying most rainforests in the world!
remove the meat meat is part of the natural food chain you might aswell say that animals in the wild should be vegetarians it will never happen i beleive in freedom of choice what if some told you to stop doing you like you would be pretty peeved long live freedom of choice
Donald Stevens Well........not to start a fight or anything......but if you Google it......Cows produce most of the methane in the atmosphere through their waste products. Methane is one of the main chemicals contributing to Global Warming. Us Humans are therefore creating problems for the earth by domesticating and breeding huge huge numbers of cattle. Bye Bye rainforests. PS: I am not a vegetarian or vegan, I am just curious about thing like this. :)
Rachel Boettcher the computer your using used energy which was powered by power plants which may have used fossil fuels the lorry that delivered it to the store used gas which added to the pollution in the atmosphere in short everything people do in live in someway or another causes pollution and china is the biggest polluter of the world burning millions of tonnes of coal a day
Red Mist I don't really think that's true. First of all, I'm talking about Global Warming, not pollution. Second of all........go research it.
Rachel Boettcher pollution is what causes global warming lol
Red Mist There are different kinds of pollution. And I am telling you METHANE is one of the leading contributors to Global warming. From cows. Comes out their butts, doncha know. And we have created a LOT of cows. Look it up!! Red meant (FROM COWS) is really bad for you! http://www.vegetariantimes.com/resources/why_go_veg/
Rachel Boettcher oh well guess over 50% of population is doomed we better kiss our butts goodbye now lmao for thousands of years people have been eating beef and aint nobody gunna stop me from eating what i want i would rather be dead than be told what i can and can't eat viva la revolution
Red Mist No one's telling you what to eat. No one said "If you eat meat, we are going to punish you". Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and beliefs. I'm just here spreading information, not forcing other people to believe what I do. But how can you make decisions if you are not informed on the subject? So there ya go.
Having worked at a food research institute and seen what goes into processed foods I can tell you that the ONLY food you should eat is food you have prepared from raw ingredients. Convenience and time savings will cost you severely in other areas, such as health, immune suppression and even cognitive skills. Hippocrates said, "Food is the first medicine."
Very well said Tracy. Unfortunately most people are too lazy to care what they put in their bodies... As long as it's easy and tastes good. So sad.
Yuck! and I shop at Giant! Thought this was just in McBurgers...
Not really fair to call people lazy. I am very aware of the food that goes on my table and I am strict about readin labels but if companies are calling it "Beef" how are people to know it's really, "Well....technically beef but a whole lot of toxins and crap that we don't HAVE to by law disclose".
Traci Costarella- You are so right...I would have never thought that beef had anything added to it. We are led to believe to read the label for ingredients ...and obviously the label does not contain all ingerdients. I always buy organic & grain fed only beef & chicken. This i9s very disturbing to me & just not right !!
Traci Costarella I think it is fair to call some people Lazy... Look at the obese people in our world.
Jon Yenney Well you won't buy that stuff again...right? I am sorry for you & others who buy that.
Jennifer Lynn You can't grow meat. If that was possible, I bet many people would do it!
we do grow meat.....lol... It's a processed world we live in.. why cook real chicken when we can have chicken nuggets from Micky D's, already cooked roast, cooked bacon,,, everything can and is done for us, and we don't question that.... much. ( we should , but don't), hence being "lazy"... we are going to hell in a hand basket, we as society,,, the people of the world take for granted that the air will be clean, we'll have a place to lay our heads,we'll have food to eat and fresh water.....

We in the processed world has forgot how to plant a vegetable ..... eat raw stay alive.... If no,t just go Micky D's once a week if you can't help yourself.....
For more alarming truth about U.S. food industry practices, watch the documentary, "Food, Inc."---it will really enlighten and then make you more incensed! Educate those you care about and then stop buying the "garbage".
I'll have to get the DVD. Here's a youtube about the hoffible conditions of factory chicken farming.
hello.if your so scared raise your own. your body reqares some off most all foods. i wouldnt eat anything that comes from the body off the ocean or lakes. but according to all th experts.fish. swrimp. tuna and loboter. are suppose to healthy.. eat away and good health.ill skip themm than kyou very much.
I do not have the words to express this inhuman & unacceptable practice!
It's abominable - I bet it's just the tip of the iceberg - who knows what's even in an apple at this point - Is a spade a spade, even if you call it that!!
Another reason why Im so happy to be vegetarian
I will not sigh a petition of this nature singling out only one or two businesses. That's like stepping on one or two ants to remove a whole ant bed. When you produce a petition to ALL businesses tha handle and sell food to put pressure on their suppliers of not only meat but all foods that are processed with the slime and all foods that are produce with products provided by Monsanto and other orgs. that are infecting the food and drink we injest with chemicals and poisons contrary to the...

When you produce a petition that will accomplish these ends, come back and see me. Until then, don't hand me a bandaid to initial.
Got news for you. If you eat hot dogs, you have been eating this for years. The methods just get better but that's how hot dogs are made.Especially the ones labeled "beef,pork and chicken" they have everything you can't sell otherwise. Modern Bologna,some sausages and several types of lunch meat.
We need much more than a box of band-aids to fix this.
I agree, though sometimes starting something small can bring big rewards.
Woody Ebersold All anyone needs to to is read the package to know that. The difference, from things I've read and heard, is that they didn't used to scrape the parts up off the floor to make the packaged meats, processed milk and cheese and other processed stuff we eat and drink. And, it's still probably healthier than the fruits and vegetables that Monsanto has anything to do with and M Obobo want's us to eat.
yes, but bandaid is better than nothing at all...
makes me want to be a vegetarian:/
ew, time to pack a lunch then! lol
Crispys school lunches are vegetarian
ha. not if they can find a big mack.what planet are you living on.

Can you re-post that in English?
Danielle.... Seriously. Are we 10?
This is what has happened due to the text message craze. English is a lost art!
Vegetables have pesticides and beef have pink slime...I don't know what is safe any more.
Eat organic... just in case!
