All commissaries have modified their contracts to require that our ground beef suppliers only sell us products not treated with the lean finely textured beef antibacterial (LFTB) process, which uses 'pink slime.' The process of phasing out all pink slime products will be completed by the end of May, 2012. In the meantime, commissaries are carrying USDA organic ground beef or USDA all-natural ground beef, neither of which has pink slime. For more information, contact your local commissary.
