Ok, so some of you are reading this headline and are a bit confused, I realized. Pink slime? Yeah, it’s what passes for hamburger in our schools and fast food restaurants. Treehugger has a recent article about a whistleblower from this industry, check it out for all sorts of background info.
Anyway, there’s a petition at change.org to ask the USDA to stop the use of pink slime in the National School Lunch Program. They’re closing in on their goal of 300,000 signatures and need your help! You can find the petition here.
