Price Chopper statement regarding "pink slime" in meat
Price Chopper released the following statement regarding ground beef at their store --
Price Chopper does not buy, use or sell any fresh ground beef that has been ammoniated; nor do we employ FLTB or BLBT as fillers for our fresh ground beef. We have one main beef supplier whose meat we grind fresh in-store several times daily – JBS Swift. We have documentation from JBS Swift that the fresh beef we purchase from them to grind in our stores does not include ammoniated product, FLTB or BLBT. As a point of interest, suppliers of our frozen ground beef patties have also confirmed that they do not incorporate ‘pink slime’ into the products that we purchase from them.
