ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Officially it’s known as lean, finely textured beef. But the product better known now to consumers as “pink slime” won’t be found in Anne Arundel County public school cafeterias.

Never mind that the beef product is approved for use in ground meat by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

County schools lunch coordinator Jodi Risse has told The Capital of Annapolis that the system never carried that food.

Recently the USDA announced it would allow schools participating in the National School Lunch Program to choose whether the ground beef it purchases contains the “pink slime.”

The textured beef is a form of semi-liquid meat created in a process that separates fatty pieces from beef trimmings.

Risse told the paper recently: “We won’t select that option.”

    Pink slime would be like prime rib compared to the slop they feed the kids now in aaco.
