Pink Slime plants close – handing out pink slips

CONTENTS:

In a statement, the company said it was attempting "to rebuild markets following the unfounded and misguided attacks" and was "making significant progress in setting the record straight." "We continue to stand by our lean beef as 100% wholesome, safe and nutritious, and we will continue to defend Beef Products, Inc. against the mischaracterized and irresponsible misrepresentations that led us to take these actions," said spokesman Rich Jochum, urging consumers to visit the website BeefIsBeef. It says its boneless lean beef is "approximately 94% lean beef, and made with great attention to food safety and quality." [15] "We intend to continue operations at this location and expand production here as the market activity allows," Jochum said. "In the interim, we continue to stand by our lean beef as 100 percent wholesome, safe and nutritious, and we will continue to defend Beef Products Inc. against the mischaracterized and irresponsible misrepresentations that led us to take these actions." [22]

Beef Products, Inc. extracts lean meat from beef trimmings and processes it into low-fat meat products for use in grocery stores and fast-food restaurants. [6]

Sen. Bill Dotzler, D-Waterloo, whose district includes the shuttered Beef Products processing plant, said the governor’s efforts "just couldn’t keep up" with the spread of the negative publicity. [9]

In late March, the company suspended production of its lean finely textured beef, a filler made from chemically treated trimmings that is mixed with fattier beef, at the three plants. [15] In late March, BPI suspended production at the three plants for 60 days. At that time, BPI spokesman Rich Jochum had said the closure could become permanent. "This is a direct reaction to all the misinformation about our lean beef," Jochum said then. [24]

The product is, on average, 95 percent lean beef and is mixed with ground beef and in other products including low-fat hot dogs. [6] In March, public outcry erupted over the filler for ground beef, which is made from fatty trimmings that are more susceptible to contamination than other cuts of beef. The trimmings are therefore sprayed with ammonia – more often associated with cleaning products – to remove pathogens such as salmonella and E.coli. [24] The product, added to some ground beef, includes beef trimmings treated with ammonia to kill bacteria. [18] Following the public backlash, many grocery stores announced that they would either discontinue selling ground beef that included LFTB or they would label the ground beef that included the product. [22]

Pink pasta!
easy healthy dinners
Image by SteffanyF!
I added beet greens to my mac and cheese and it turned my pasta pink!
If you want to add some healthy to your boxed dinner, it was really easy. Make the mac and cheese as directed, but don’t add the milk or the cheese packet.
In another pan, saute some onion, garlic and the beet green stems until tender. Add chicken and the beet greens (make sure the beet greens are sliced thinly) and cook until the greens have wilted and the chicken is mostly cooked. Add to the pot with the noodles and butter, mix, and add the milk and cheese packet. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Trick your child into eating something healthy. . . .mua ha ha!

Upper East Side, Central Park – Jun 2008 – 085

These pictures were taken on two successive days when I had doctor appointments on the Upper East Side of NYC, and had the chance to walk along Fifth Avenue, and then through Central Park in order to return to my apartment on the Upper West Side, at Broadway & 96th

I had spotted this woman jogging in Central Park a little earlier — how could you not notice someone in a bright pink top and pink hat? She had been running south, while I was walking north, and she went by too quickly for me to get a picture.

But about ten minutes later, as I was approaching Columbus Avenue and 96th Street, she jogged past me again … she had to stop at Columbus Avenue, because of the traffic, so she was actually jogging in place when I took this picture…

Note: this picture was published in a Sep 21, 2008 blog article entitled "Road Kill." It was also included in a June 6, 2009 photo mashup, as seen in the comment below, and as displayed in full-sized format on this Flickr page. And it was published in an Aug 4, 2009 blog titled "What Kind of Music Do You Listen to When You Work Out?" More recently, it was published in a Sep 1, 2009 blog titled "How Far Should You Run In A Workout?", which was republished in a Jul 19, 2010 blog. And it was published in a Sep 28, 2009 blog titled "Treadmill Vs. Outdoor Running," which was reprinted in a Jun 30, 2010 Bike Swim Run blog with the same title. It was also published in a Nov 6, 2009 blog titled World Run Day 2009 is This Sunday!" And it was published in a Dec 12, 2009 "Sweet California" blog titled "Tomorrow’s the Day."

Moving into 2010, the photo was published in a Feb 25, 2010 blog titled "Is Less Exercise More Effective?" It was also published in an undated (Mar 2010) blog titled "My yeast infection cure." And it was published in a Mar 31, 2010 "Wellwire" blog titled "What’s My Motivation?", as well as a Mar 31, 2010 Suite-101-dot-com blog titled "Term Insurance Comparison by Age for Women Only," and an Apr 1, 2010 blog titled "Encouraging Activity With Group Health Insurance Discounts." It was also published in an Apr 22, 2010 Italian blog titled "Ti alleni con la musica? Apple sostituisce le cuffie che non resistono al sudore." It was also published in an Apr 23, 2010 Insured Life blog, with the same title as the caption that I used on this Flickr page.

It was also published in a May 24, 2010 blog titled "How Physical Activity Enhances Productivity." And it was published in an undated (May 2010) blog titled "Exercise for Women." It was also published in a Jun 3, 2010 blog titled "How to Look Cute While Jogging."

In the second half of 2010, it was published in a Jul 7, 2010 blog titled "Women’s Workout Guidelines Are Mostly Guesswork." A tightly cropped version of the photo was published in a Jul 14, 2010 blog titled "3 Reasons Not To Use An iPod Armband." And a very tightly cropped version was also published in an Aug 26, 2010 issue of the French version of Slate, in a blog titled "Ecouter de la musique pousse à s’entraîner plus fort." It was also published in a Sep 11, 2010 blog titled "Working Out in Maintenance Mode." And it was published in a Sep 26, 2010 ArticleTZ blog, with the same title (and notes) as what I had put onto the original Flickr page. It was also published in an undated (Oct 2010) Cool New York Group Health Insurance images blog , with the same title as the caption that I put on my Flickr page.
