From yesterday's episode of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart riffs on "pink slime," the ammonia-treated beef trimmings product sometimes added to ground beef that started making headlines earlier this year when McDonald's announced their burgers would no longer use "pink slime." Since then, many supermarkets have also announced that they would no longer sell beef containing "pink slime."
In the beef industry, "pink slime" is officially known as lean finely textured beef. "Well done, beef PR team," says Stewart. "Makes it sound like something rich meat eaters can buy from Hammacher Schlemmer."
