Following last week's ABC News report which found that ammonia-treated beef trimmings, affectionately known as "pink slime," are in about 70% of the ground beef Americans buy at the grocery store, supermarket chain Kroger has issued a statement to list which of its ground meats do not contain the filler.
"Kroger carries ground beef both with and without lean finely textured beef. For customers who choose to avoid it, we offer a variety of options including:
Kroger's Private Selection Angus Ground Chuck, Round and Sirloin;
Private Selection All Natural Ground Beef and Private Selection Organic Ground Beef solid in 1 lb. packages, labeled 80% lean and above;
Laura's Lean Ground Beef; and ground beef prepared in store.
All ground beef you find at your local Kroger is USDA-regulated, inspected and approved for food safety and quality. That includes beef products made with lean finely textured beef."
