McDonald’s answers pink slime and worm meat rumours by inviting cameras into their burger factory

Daniel Libeskind, when he was hired as master planner for a new trade center complex in 2003, spoke of the slurry wall as the soul of his design, and by then it had already served as a multipurpose symbol of urban recovery, democracy, communal strength, the human spirit, not to mention the virtues of sound engineering.

INTERVIEWER
Do you ever revise a story after it’s been published? Apparently, before he died, Proust rewrote the first volumes of Remembrance of Things Past.
MUNRO
Yes, and Henry James rewrote simple, understandable stuff so it was obscure and difficult. Actually I’ve done it recently. The story “Carried Away” was included in Best American Short Stories 1991. I read it again in the anthology, because I wanted to see what it was like and I found a paragraph that I thought was really soggy. It was a very important little paragraph, maybe two sentences. I just took a pen and rewrote it up in the margin of the anthology so that I’d have it there to refer to when I published the story in book form...


創世紀

7上主天主用地上的灰土形成了人,在他鼻孔內吹了一口生氣,人就成了一個有靈的生物。7And the Lord God formed man of the slime of the earth: and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living soul.

Pink slime is a colloquial term[1] for ammoniated boneless lean beef trimmings or similar products, which are considered "unfit for human consumption" until ammonia has been added.[2] The product is sold by a number of beef processing companies, including Cargill Meat Solutions and Beef Products, Inc.[3] 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.[3] 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.[4]
