"Dude, It's NOT Beef!" T-Shirt Giveaway

Beef Products Inc., the maker of “Pink Slime” suspended operations last Monday at all but one plant where the “lean finely textured beef (LFTB)” or “boneless lean beef trimmings” are processed, acknowledging current public backlash over the product has cost the company business.

Pink Slime

Following the suspension of operations at the plants, members of the media and leaders that included Governors from meat-producing states were invited to tour the facilities in an attempt to repudiate what they called "inaccurate information" that they claimed as having caused "an unnecessary panic among consumers." The publicity tour emerged with the promotional slogan, "Dude, it's beef!"


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

"I think a big part of the campaign problem has been the other side has had a catchy name,” Kansas Governor Sam Brownback said. “I hope, 'Dude, it's beef,' catches on because that's what this is.  Dude, it's beef."

Well, we beg to differ and in response to this, The Mohawk Valley Trading Co. has partnered with custom t-shirt printer Crooked Brook to sponsor a “Dude, It’s Not Beef!” T-Shirt Giveaway.

Dude It’s Not Beef! T-Shirt

This white, 6.1 oz., 100% cotton t-shirt is printed with Direct to Garment printing (DTG) technology which uses eco-friendly, water soluble ink that bonds to the molecules of the fabric, unlike most screen printing which layers Plastisol (a suspension of PVC particles in a plasticizer) on top of the t-shirt. DTG allows photographic quality printing with no setup fee or minimum you can order as few as one custom t-shirt.

Might as well swallow ground up plastic milk jugs. This stuff was previously used for dog food. Apparently it was not good enough for the dogs. Slime so good only a Texas governor could love it.

I hope that this revelation makes people really question what it is that we allow these companies to put in our food, and for that matter makes us question what it is that we put in our bodies. Pink Slime is only a small part of a much larger problem: we have allowed companies to hide how they produce our food from us, and the animals that we consume are suffering horribly from it and as a nation we are experiencing massive increases in cancer, cardiovascular diseases and a myriad of other health problems, and instead of asking why this is, we have complacently accepted that this must be normal. It is time to fight back #Occupyourfood

WTF. That's chicken you have posted there, not beef. That's what's in chicken nuggets, not what's in the aisle of my local Publix.

I only eat meat for a month out of the year (to honor my dad-- he always hated I was a vegetarian and died three years ago). When I do, I'm incredibly selective, not just because I dislike the taste, but for health reasons. It's pretty disturbing what gets put into ALL food products, but especially meats. What really weirds me out is going to the grocery store and finding that they specify " colored " food---- what's the point in that other than aesthetic? I for one would rather my food not contain food coloring and look normal. Another thing that freaks me out is hormones----- not to sound crass but think about 13 year olds 10-15 years ago compared to the 13 year olds you see's almost like early on-set puberty. The only possible answer is their diets and the immense amount of hormones shoved into all the food that they eat (milk and meat in particular).
