Albertson’s To Stop Selling “Finely Textured Beef”

There’s been a lot of news lately about “finely textured beef” and it’s also been called “pink slime”. OK. I didn’t realize I was getting that stuff at every grocery store when I purchased ground beef. Here’s the official press release:

Effective today, SUPERVALU has made the decision to no longer purchase fresh ground beef containing finely textured beef for any of our traditional retail stores. These stores include Acme®, Albertsons®, Cub Foods®, Farm Fresh®, Hornbacher’s®, Jewel-Osco®, Lucky, Shaw’s/Star Market™, Shop ‘n Save® and Shoppers Food & Pharmacy®.  We are currently working with our suppliers to implement this change.

While it’s important to remember there are no food safety concerns with products containing finely textured beef, this decision was made due to ongoing customer concerns over these products. All current beef products in our stores meet strict safety and quality standards approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
