McDonald's Ditches 'Pink Slime'

Headline Goes Here

This could make you feel a little better about eating under the "Golden Arches."

McDonald's says it will no longer use the controversial ground beef filler dubbed "pink slime," which is really spare beef trimmings treated with ammonium hydroxide to kill any bacteria. McDonald's made the move after celebrity chef Jamie Oliver publicly criticized its use.

The fast-food giant has said the decision is not connected to any particular event. As gross as it sounds- the additive is approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
