The AP reports today that "Restaurant chains and beef processors defended their products’ safety Thursday after a report that an ammonia treatment thought to kill harmful germs in meat isn’t as effective as the industry and regulators believed. . . . Fast-food chains McDonald’s Corp. and Burger King Holdings Inc. and agricultural conglomerate Cargill Inc. all use the meat in their hamburgers. All said they’ll keep using the meat and that their products are safe."

. .. . . . I’m not sure that these corporations are the "customers" we should be concerned about re-affirming their commitment to the consumption of ammonia.  Maybe I’m old fashioned though.
