Stop the smear campaign against safe beef ("pink slime")

    1. Petition by

      S U

      Sioux City, IA

The media has created mass hysteria over lean, finely-textured beef (LFTB), which is referred to as "pink slime." They claim that the product is unsafe to eat because it is salvaged from fatty parts of the cow and treated with ammonia. This claim is baseless and absolutely false. The product is produced in accordance with accepted industrial health and safety standards and has real nutritional value comparable to typical ground beef. These lies are killing jobs and destroying companies that have done nothing wrong. Look it up, then join the cause to stop this smear campaign!

      Because I believe this is simply put a "social media smear campaign." It is wrong and has put many people out of jobs unfairly. The meat is completely safe (more so than many of the other things we, as Americans, eat). DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH- DON'T SPEAK UNTIL YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!

      I have been eating this beef product for years and am very disappointed in the media, I will continue to purchase this safe and affordable beef. I am happy Hy-Vee will continue to carry this product. My heart goes out to the workers whose jobs and lives are up in the air due to all the negative media attention. I will continue to STAND BEHIND BP AND THE CARE THEY USE TO SEND OUT A VERY SAFE PRODUCT. The media needs to stop refering to this as "PINK SLIME
