    Default Pink Slime in what stores and burger places?

    Does anyone have a list of the burger and grocery stores in California that sell pink slime? I also wanted to find out if "InNout burger" used it especially. thanks

    It's everywhere. That is probably not hyperbole, either.

    Buy meat from a farm, at the farm, to avoid it 100%.

    MARKETS PROMISE NO ‘PINK SLIME’ IN MEAT

    Ralphs, Albertsons, Vons among latest to change offerings

    Supermarket chains Ralphs, Food 4 Less, Albertsons and Vons this week joined a growing list of store chains that will no longer sell beef that includes an additive with the unappetizing moniker “pink slime.”

    The meat filler made from waste scraps has been sold by many supermarkets in San Diego County, although many of the grocers are planning to stop using it as an ingredient in ground beef, responding to consumer demand.
    Even at them if they used it, it was mostly in frozen patties. At my local Vons the hamburg gets ground fresh every day on site.

    Glad it's banned in Canada.

    Vons is a local name for Safeway. Ralph's would be the same as Krogers or King Soopers.

    Dang, I wish they would just label it rather than ceasing to use it altogether. I frankly don't mind the stuff, but now thanks to this silly outrage I'm likely going to have to pay more per pound for ground beef.

    Raley's, Safeway stop selling 'pink slime' beef products

    Customer concerns over "pink slime," the ground beef additive with the unfortunate nickname, have led Safeway and West Sacramento-based Raley's Fine Foods to stop selling products containing the filler.

    The supermarket chains join a growing list of grocers nationwide, including Kroger Co. and Supervalu Inc., which owns the Albertsons and Lucky grocery chains, that have yanked the products.

    The filler is known in the beef industry as "lean, finely textured beef," or LFTB.

    Safeway on Wednesday said it will stop selling fresh or frozen ground beef with the filler.

    Raley's officials released a statement that said it doesn't use the filler in its fresh ground beef products or in its "Black Angus" frozen beef patties. Raley's said it does sell other frozen beef patties with the additive, but will stop.

    I highly doubt In n Out ever sold it, you should be fine with their beef. In fact I'd put $100 on it right now.

    Raleys and Safeway are saying they are discontinuing it, but I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND not buying meat from them anyway.

    Stick to grass-fed, no hormones, no rbst, no anti-biotics, etc.. Do you have a whole foods or trader joe's? Sprouts? Henry's?

    We have a trader joe's. Do you think their meat is ok?

    Trader Joe's is rebranded products made by others and they don't reveal their sources (I did read one article which said that Stoneyfield made their yogurt and Stacy's makes their pita chips) but in the regular supermarkets the only place you found pink slime was in frozen patties and TJ's doesn't sell those- it was not in fresh ground meat. I am sure their meat is fine.
