Do they serve it at the Redland Hotel that Lynda and her husband own? Ask before you order a burger at the Whistle Stop. If she would serve it to people and children fed by the County I am sure she would serve it to people fed by her like her patrons and family.
The County Commission voted 10 to 1 to NOT allow pink slime in food products served by the County or Public Health Trust in their food programs (Resolution above). The only Commissioner who defended the pink slime additive was the District 8 County Commissioner Lynda Bell, she said it made for leaner beef. She kept saying I am not defending it, as she defended it. Here is her reasoning in her own words. Watch the damn video.

What is Pink Slime:
|Just what you want in your burger.|
It's actually a low-cost ingredient in ground beef made from fatty left over meat trimmings from other cuts. The bits are heated to about 100 F and spun to remove most of the fat, then compressed into blocks for use in ground meat. The product is then exposed to "a puff of ammonium hydroxide gas" to kill bacteria, such as E. coli and salmonella.
Is this the kind of County Commissioner you want? One that would would not protect the public from meat fillers puffed with ammonium hydroxide gas?
How about voting for Daniella Levine Cava for district 8 County Commissioner on August 26th? Let's get rid of Lynda and her stupid votes. The rest of the County Commission protected the public what is wrong with her? Especially since she believes as a "fiscal conservative" the Government should not be trusted, why is she believing the FDA all of a sudden?
