Processed Foods

Hello All!

It has been a while since I last posted, but I have been extremely busy the last few weeks, finishing up some projects and getting ready for summer! I came across this article today about the Gross Ingredients in Processed Foods and how the public is becoming more and more aware of these additives.

I just wanted to point out that the CSPI staff attorney Sarah Klein who was quoted in the article saying, “In pink slime, we are looking at a product that is unsavory, but not unsafe — we don’t have any evidence to suggest the ammonia treatment is dangerous.” I am sorry, but any chemical that is used to clean my kitchen floor, cannot be safe to ingest. This statement really irks me. They have not done a study or have evidence on the long term effects of these additives. Why is it being sold for human consumption? How many years will it take before they come out with facts stating that if you have ever eaten any meat that contained pink slime and ammonia (or any of these other unhealthy and disgusting additives) you could be eligible to sue the government for damage to your body?

OK, enough of my ranting, I am interested to hear people’s opinions on this matter. Have you changed your diet due to these new findings about the food we consume as a nation?

Happy Eating!
