Is Macdonald's plan to drop the use of Pink Slime in Hamburgers a good thing or bad?


The growing controversy over the health risks of “pink slime” added to hamburgers and ground beef in the US as a filler, has led MacDonald’s to announce they will no longer be using the product. Will MacDonald’s pledge to stop using pink slime in its hamburgers result in massive layoffs and plant closures as well as higher priced hamburgers or improved health. Pink slime is a food additive made of blood, tissue, spinal, rectal and other discarded parts of animals not normally eaten and treated with Ammonium hydroxide to kill bacteria. It is used in dog food but also in hamburgers.
