“White Slime” Emerges as Newest Consumer Worry

A recent Huffington Post article examines the mounting food safety issues surrounding chicken products.

Pink slime, aka the ammonia-treated “lean, finely textured beef” developed by America’s ground-beef suppliers, can no longer hog the slime spotlight. Enter “white slime”—aka chicken. In a November 19 article for The Huffington Post, contributor Bruce Friedrich explains why consumers should be far more concerned about the threat chicken poses than its textured beef counterpart. Friedrich reveals that in a previous study by researchers at the University of Arizona, more fecal bacteria was found on kitchen sponges, dish towels, and in the sink drain than in the toilet, adding that public health expert Dr. Michael Greger has equated chicken “juice” to essentially being “raw fecal soup.” Friedrich also notes that the US Department of Agriculture has removed numerous food safety inspectors in large quantities, and in essence, allowing the poultry industry to self-monitor.
