'Pink Slime' Update: Safe Shopping - Micro Blog

When I did my blog on the ground beef additive, Pink Slime; Oregon chain, New Seasons, Publix (in the Southeastern U.S.), HEB (the Texas based grocer), Costco and Whole Foods; already did not use the controversial filler. This week according to NPR, Supervalu Inc., The Kroger Company, and Safeway Inc. have all pledged to stop buying and selling ground beef containing Pink Slime, as well.
