Anyone who has been to one of the dining halls on UNH's campus will agree that there is a large quantity of beef being served. Whether it's hamburgers, meatloaf, or tacos, we all wonder what's really in that mystery meat that we're consuming so often. Well, it really is as gross as we imagined: pink slime.
Also known as lean, finely textured beef, 'pink slime' is an ingredient mixed in with fatty ground beef to make the result leaner. However, this additive has been treated with ammonia to kill bacteria, a chemical found in a lot of cleaning products. See something wrong here?
Thankfully, dining services cares about us, and on March 27th it decided to do away with it. While 70-80% of all ground beef contains pink slime, UNH Dining's purchasing manager has made it his mission to keep it out of our dining halls and off of our plates. Thank you, Rick MacDonald.
