Pink slime is a derogatory term coined by detractors of a process that uses technology to produce more lean beef from each animal "Manipulated Public Opinion Trumps Real Science - Again" . The product is sold by a number of beef processing companies, including Cargill Meat Solutions and Beef Products, Inc. The lean beef sold by BPI has become known for increasing the pH of the beef trimmings by adding ammonium hydroxide to remove pathogens such as E. coli and Salmonella , while the Cargill product uses antimicrobial treatments that lower the pH. This beef product is USDA -approved and is a component (typically less than 25 percent) of a majority of ground beef in the United States.
