Celebrate !!! No more 'pink slime' at McDonalds, Burger King or Taco Bell

I am too through with those chains, especially McDonald's.

I actually have cut way down on Mcdonald's since learning the buns have a chemical used in yoga mats. i haven't bought a burger or sandwich there since.

Then last night on the news it was reported that McDonalds has stopped creating burgers from 'pink slime'

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/20...

'These trimmings, which consist of what’s left of the meat after all the choice cuts of beef are taken, are banned for human consumption in the U.K, where they are instead used for dog and chicken food. They are legal for consumption in the United States, however, where they are treated with ammonium hydroxide in order to kill off bacteria such as E. coli and make it safe for human consumption'

BK and Taco Bell are mentioned in the article

The one thing i've defended McDonalds about was that their burgers are all beef. That is how they built their reputation. Who knew that meant all beef pink slime.

So if I must have fast food it will be at In-n-Out burgers a western chain that has whole fresh potatoes in each restaurant to make the fries, real beef and buns that are NOT shelf stable longer than Twinkies.

Are there any other chains not using ingredients from the chemistry lab?
