We are not sure if this applies to McDonalds else where but McDonald's America has caved to the pressure and will ditch the use of pink goop beef in its burgers.
The pink goop beef, is actually made of "beef trimmings", which are the undesireable leftover stuff of a cow. We're eating that?! Beef trimmings are processed and soaked in ammonium hydroxide and churned into ground beef.
McDonalds has finally decided to step up its standards in the US. It never used pink goop meat in the UK.
Joining McDonald's in the pink crap ban is Burger King and Taco Bell as well. [CBS News, Daily Mail ]
