Rejected pink slime being added in school lunches

It's known as pink slime and recently McDonald’s said it wasn't good enough to be in its burgers. However, it looks like it's going to be in kids' school lunches.

According to the Huffington Post, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is purchasing 7 million pounds of the stuff for school lunches.

The product officially termed "lean beef trimmings" is a ground-up combination of beef scraps, cow connective tissues and other beef trimmings.

The meat is treated with ammonium hydroxide. The USDA has stated it's safe.
