  • Then again, when the FDA approves a product for quote limited human consumption, it doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

  • Pink slime is a paste made by removing low grade leftover beef trimmings and removing the fat.

  • Its economic fraud.

  • It's not.

  • It's not fresh ground beef.

  • It's a substitute.

  • It's a cheap substitute being added in because pink slime is more at risk for E.

  • Coli and salmonella.

  • It's commonly treated with ammonia, leading to bands in Canada and the European Union.

  • Now take a look at all these logos.

  • Notice anything.

  • They all employ similar color schemes, with red being the most dominant color.

  • Studies have shown that Red is stimulating as to whether this translates to hunger that remains up for debate.

  • Color is just one of many tactics that companies use to connect with their customers.

  • Regardless, major fast food chains seem to have bought into the idea.

  • Diving deeper red seems most effective when paired with yellow, which is said to promote feelings of comfort and happiness.

  • The principle is referred to as the ketchup and mustard theory.

  • Number eight Poop soda Anyone?

  • Consumers have a morbid curiosity when it comes to gross flavors.

  • Just look at the success of Bernie Bots, every flavor beans made by jelly belly.

  • Or how about when Nathan Fielder used poop flavored frozen yogurt to promote a local business?

  • The Beef with Taco Bell.

  • The lawsuit accuses Taco Bell of misleading advertising.

  • Sorry, my mouth is full, the lawsuit says.

  • Internally, Taco Bell doesn't call this beef.

  • It calls it taco meat filling.

  • The defense start strong, but it's the other ingredients, like sodium phosphates and potassium chloride, that are less persuasive.
