Beef Products Inc. produces more than 7 million pounds of the mash weekly, making it the world's largest manufacturer of this frozen product. “BPI explains that its product is mixed into most of the ground beef sold in the United States at major fast-food restaurants, supermarkets, and school lunch programs." But that's not the entire problem, when you turn garbage bits of animal carcasses into "pink slime" to sell as a food product, there's an issue with pathogens, such as E. coli.

Original tests came back showing that the pink slime was rampant with harmful bacteria. It should have been decided not to sell right then, but Beef Products Inc. cleverly started disinfecting the slime with ammonia and convinced the FDA to allow them to list it as a "processing ingredient" so that we wouldn't know we were eating ammonia.
