This is not the same type of ammonia in household cleaners. It is classified as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is approved in most other countries, including the European Union.

I do not agree with the sensationalism of this video.
Ammonium hydroxide, a mixture of water and ammonia, is used in baked goods, cheeses, candy and other products, according to the International Food Information Council. The Food and Drug Administration approved the chemical for leavening, acidity control and other purposes. The ammonium hydroxide lowers the acidity of meat, making it inhospitable to bacteria.
Lately we have been getting phone calls and customers in the store asking about this "pink slime". None of our product contains this.
I will still eat foods that have had this type of process.

I think whoever coined the term "pink slime" should be slapped. There's too much sensationalism and not enough facts being given about mechanically separated meat and poultry.
