One person's "pink slime" apparently is another's "finely textured beef."
Whatever you call it, here's what it is: The controversial beef product made from scraps of leftover meat that's treated with ammonia.
When Patch ran that story, among the many comments was this:
"Branstad keeps this issue alive in the media more than anyone else...The 'pink slime' industry needs to tell Branstad to shut up already if they have any hope of recovering.
And we received this comment, too:
"The media needs to get off this whole thing. It is nothing...There is no problem--there never was a problem--the sensationalism and terminology drove the thing and it was unwarranted."
And then there were people who were glad to know and didn't blame anybody.
So, now we ask: Who's to blame for all this talk about meat, or slime, or whatever it is? Is it the governor? The media? Or is nobody to blame? Let us know in the Patch Poll and in the comments section below.
