For those among you who really miss the “pink slime” content of McDonald’s hamburgers and Taco Bell’s … everything, you can still get your fix of the ammonia-doused meat product, made of leftover, fatty trimmings. Where, you ask, can I find this abomination? According to The Daily, you can find it in your child’s school lunch.
The USDA is planning on buying 7 million pounds of the stuff in the next few months, even though fast food chains have dropped the product. Basically, you’d better off feeding your kid McDonald’s then sending him or her to school with lunch money. Or you could just pack a can of dog food for lunch. It’s the same product, more or less.
