READ THIS! Burger woes

I found this NYT story rather fascinating:
 
http://www.nytimes.com/20...eat.html?th&emc=th
 
From MikeS.
This is a detailed report about just how unsafe hamburger meat can be. It also makes me really mad at the politicians that run the U.S.D.A. Our safety IS NOT their first concern. It also tells me I'll only buy my hamburger from Costco in the future.

    I believe if you do a Roadfood.com search you will find this article was discussed here when it was originally published last October.

    Davydd, if you look at the first message, it was posted in October.
     
    The weird thing is, Bill B. seems to be quoting MikeS. from another thread.

    Because somebody really, really liked it?
     
    Oh, my mistake...you wrote "a sticky".

    Doing a search on NYT archives, I think this is the article referenced above.   ... http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/31/us/31meat.html?pagewanted=1&sq=hamburger%20meat%20u%20s%20d%20a&st=nyt&scp=1

    Articles about the 'pink slime' from Beef Products were interesting too.  .... No wounder hamburger meat from grocery stores do not taste right or good.     ... I'll go back to grinding my own meat.   
     
    I just ground a chuck roast couple a days ago, and the chopped steak that I cook did not disappoint me.  It was far better than any extra lean or ground chuck or round from the store.

    Does this topic really need to be here? Gets in the way.

    Actually, it is of historical interest. 
     
    By exposing "pink slime" and its common use the media caused an internet firestorm that led many retailers and restaurants to discontinue its use. 
     
    Perhaps their 'hidden agenda' was to discourage beef consumption for its alleged adverse effect on "Global Warming"; who knows, but the result was ridding most retail fresh ground meat of 'pink slime'.
     
    As Mr. Justice Brandeis once said:  "Sunlight is the best disinfectant".

    I buy LOCAL raised beef from my LOCAL store (nearest village to my place is 1,150 population), so I do know what's not in it...
     
    I do not trust the midwest meat factories that process a gazillion pounds of beef everyweek, then truck it over very long distances. If you buy hamburger that comes in a "chub", it's from a meat factory...
     
    Even Safeway grinds their hamburger fresh on the spot, in each store, so if you're eating pink slime meat, it's because you didn't look very far to source it...
     
    And "jcheese", how does this topic "get in the way"...?

    The Pink Slim Exposure opened my eyes and changed my eating habits for the most part. I try to only buy locally raised and butchered 100 organic hormone & nitrate free beef,pork and chicken products (this does not always include going out to eat) A little more expensive granted but these fresh all natural proteins are not only obviously healthier for you. They actually taste wayyy better retaining all of their own natural delicious delicate flavors, the mass produced proteins have lost much of their flavor much like GMO produce. So not having really deep pockets i sacrifice the quantity of protein i use to consume (meat in/with every meal) by about 50% for delicious healthy quality.

    Frankly, the only 'pink slime burger' I've ever seen is in the burger meat they use in school lunches; it has the texture and consistency of veggie-burger.
     
    As we have a Whole Foods only 2 miles from our home, my wife has their butcher grind it on the spot from chuck and sirloin.  Oddly enough, as there is no waste, it's no more expensive than buying 'too much' from, say, Wal-Mart.
     
    BTW: another way we get better quality for less with zero waste is having them custom cut bacon.
