If it’s so good, they can sell their “lean, finely textured beef” product as is. Put it in a package and let it compete with regular ground beef. At minimum I want to know whether this filler is in my hamburger.
This is basically the meat that was once considered too dangerous (or unappetizing) for human consumption and went into dog food and other animal feed. Beef Products, Inc. may have found a way to make it safe by using ammonium hydroxide gas, but it sure as heck isn’t a very appealing process and I really don’t want anything to do with it.
Please see post 9.
