As I understand Pink Slime is in ground beef, I can't seem to find out if it is in ground chicken or turkey to? I heard about McDonalds??? chick nuggets, but I???m wandering if that stuff is add to ground poultry that is sold in stores?

I'm just trying my best not to feed this junk to my kids.

If you want somebody to help you, you need to phrase your question as best as possible. You completely changed the original statement to what it is now and now it is much more clear what you were asking. Don't get upset at someone for not being able to understand you. Nobody was offending your intelligence; it helps to have a sense of humor.

Obviously kindness is a virtue and not a talent, I really thought I was on a page were I could add questions about paleo concerns not at my local English class. If you go to a Spanish blog and for whatever reason you did not came out as clear as you though you did, any one on it would had worked with you to answer your question without offending your intelligence. But again maybe that is just to hard for your nature. Please stop wasting my time; if you don’t have a real answer to the question posted you have no business making a comment.

we don’t eat McDonalds, our any kind of fast food, thank God but we do buy some of our meats from the local grocery store , main reason why I post this question. I found lots of stuff about McDonalds and Jamie Oliver on line, but nothing clear on the ground poultry processing techniques

For crying out loud folks! Can we not help our fellow PHers? Not everyone on here is going to have English as a first language, but the board itself is in English, which is one of the reasons we are able to edit questions for clarity. If you have a problem with the grammar don't flame the questioner, help 'em out and fix it.

As it stands now, you're asking if pink slime can be used on ground chicken or turkey? What does that mean?

I'm sorry but it appears that you actually are capable of grammar and spelling. If you reread what you wrote in the original post, it is impossible to interpret what you are asking.

Hey Alex , Thank you for your inside full answer! I’m glad you have time to waste mine. I thought I could ask a real question about a real concern .

The pink slime you've seen in the press isn't something that is on or happens to meat, it is a complete product referring to the chicken paste used to make breaded chicken nuggets or as cheap filler for burgers. There appear to be two varieties chicken and beef. If you buy organic high quality ground chicken or turkey at the grocery store I doubt you will encounter it.

McDonald's and some other fast food chains claim that they have stopped using it because of public outcry, but many chicken products (that aren't whole pieces of chicken) and cheap burgers will be made of it, like school lunches, kids' menus in other restaurants, and cheap frozen dinners purchased at the store.

If you buy exclusively whole cuts of meat, pastured or not, you won't have to worry about eating pink slime at all.

I believe it is used in fast food items such as chicken nuggets. I have not heard of it being added to the ground poultry at grocery stores. To be safe, you can, as Anna suggested, have the butcher grind whole, boneless chicken parts for you. That way, you can control what goes into it. Also, the store brands of ground meats tend to be done in-house and rarely have additives.

New Info: The manufacturer--or a major one--of "pink slime" is filing for bankruptcy. Here's a link to MSNBC.

That "pink slime" is in anything you see "mechanically separated" on the ingredients list. First hit teh intarwebs in variations of Can You Guess What McDonald's Product This Food Item Is? Take all the leftover chicken after selling the breasts, legs, and thighs - attempt to separate the "meat" from the bones - grind - sterilize (with ammonia) - recolor - reflavor - et Voil??!

And you didn't believe Michael Pollan when he said it was important to learn where your food comes from ...

Maria, did you ever get a true answer? I too have learned about pink slim (for those who dont know it is the final meat rederings from the cattle bone that is infested with disease and then rolled in a machine with imonia which apparently makes it "safe to eat") Its absolutely DISGUSTING and will not ever enter my childs body.

However, I too am interested in knowing if this horrible process is used in ground poultry and the teenage boys behind the deli counter could really care less then answer my questions. It sure would be nice to be able to comfortably purchase ground meat and not always have to have it ground for me.

For anyone who has not been exposed to this rendering process I highly recommend you look it up. Try "Jamie Olivers Food Revolution Pink Slime".

You will never eat another burger after you see it... Im fairly certain.

Gee, I wonder why we are all dying of cancer!?!?!?!

They used pink slime in Ghostbusters 2 to animated the Stature of Liberty. Think about what it would do to your body!

Yes, you can buy a version of chicken "pink" slime in the freezer section.

Why don't you just buy whole chicken parts (deboned) and have them ground fresh? I have never seen 'pink slime' anywhere.
