“Let’s call this product what it is and let ‘pink slime’ become a term of the past,” Texas Gov. Rick Perry said after the tour, after which officials showed off t-shirts with the slogan, “Dude, it’s beef!”

The governors said that the treatment the product received in the media was unfair because it is not only safe, but also nutritious and allows grocers to sell leaner ground beef at a lower cost.

    I choose real meat, leave the pink slime for the governors to eat.
