I just recently received a link to an article that I unfortunately read whilst eating my lunch. As someone who has a ‘cast-iron’ stomach, even this article made me feel a little nauseous. It’s written by a member of the Yahoo News team, Eric Pfeiffer, who went with the following headline: “McDonald’s confirms that it’s no longer using ‘pink slime’ chemical in hamburgers” The fast food company has announced that it has stopped using ammonium hydroxide in the production of its hamburgers. ‘That seems quite nice of them’, one would think…until you realize what ammonium hydroxide is also used for. This chemical is found in fertilizers, cleaning detergents and believe it or not…even homemade explosives! Why was it in the hamburger meat to begin with?! Apparently, this chemical acts as an anti-microbial agent in meat. Again, it’s hard to use the words ‘chemical’ and ‘meat’ in the same sentence. Pfeiffer’s article also lists six other chemicals found in our foods. However, some of them are OK and in that regard the author is over dramatizing, but the ammonium dioxide is a problem considering why it is used. The rest of the article contains a video where a popular UK chef shows the process of how this chemical is used in meat
