Pink Slime: Cause for Concern for Product Recall Underwriters?

March 31, 2012

Pink slime is all over the <a href="http://www.npr.org/2012/03/30/149712048/the-economic-impact-of-killing-pink-slime">news</a> these days.  It is the derogatory term for "meat product made by processing leftover beef trimmings."  In other words, it's meat filler made from leftovers with the addition of amonia.  It sure doesn't sound very tasty, but it's been in use for more than 20 years.  Public concerns about its safety have led some stores to offer <a href="http://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/health/Pink-Slime-Swap-Meat-Fresh--Easy--144700625.html">free refunds/recalls</a>.  A claim to the insurers of those stores or suppliers cannot be far behind.
It also makes you think that maybe you want to stick with lamb or chicken for Easter or Passover dinner...
