“I might be biased because I don’t eat meat,” Ellen said. “But I also know that whatever you eat, pink slime should not be a part of it.”

Ellen: What Is Pink Slime
Ellen explained that Pink Slime is made of “animal scraps…and connective tissue,” which she called disgusting, comparing it to finding used gum under a table or chair and putting it in your mouth. Ammonia is also added to these animal byproducts to kill bacteria.
She said that there are no regulations requiring sellers to mention that they use Pink Slime in their meat. “They can call it 100% ground beef when it’s not?” she said. “That’s like buying sheets that say 100% cotton, but they have thumbtacks in them.”
Ellen said we have to question our food providers and educate ourselves about what we are eating. She said that it’s important to take steps to protect our health.
