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...

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.

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.

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 :(

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.

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 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."

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 !!

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.

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.

I see a lot of comments about not eating meat at all but I believe the human body actually does need meat from time to time. Some parts of the world if you insisted on eating only vegetables humans would have starved themselves out of these areas. Another alternative to butchers if someone can't find one is to take up fishing or hunting or both. Back to human roots people. :)
