Pink slime, an inexpensive meat filler that's in 70 percent of the ground beef sold at supermarkets and up to 25 percent of American hamburger patty, is a hot topic these days, thanks to a new report that states that 7 million pounds of pink slime will appear in school lunches this spring.

The low-grade trimmings, known formally in the industry as "lean finely textured beef," were once only used in dog food and cooking oil, but they are now considered to be safe since they are sprayed with ammonia––as unlikely as that sounds.

The filler is made by simmering waste trimmings at low heat in order to make the fat separate from the muscle. Then the mixture is sprayed with ammonia gas to kill bacteria, and the product is packaged into bricks, frozen and sold to grocery stores and meat packers where it's added to most ground beef and sold for you to enjoy.

While the USDA stands by the safety of this filler, many parents are outraged. has a petition on their site asking the USDA to stop buying the trimmings.
