A much-maligned beef product that was once frequently added to hamburger is making a comeback. Two years ago, beef processors cut back sharply on producing what they call "lean, finely textured beef" after the nasty nickname for it, "pink slime," caught on in the media. Now, higher beef prices are leading to increased demand for the product.


Are stores at least mandated to appropriately label hamburger that's been, er, enhanced with Cargill's Finely Textured Beef? 'Cause I'd really like to know if that was what I was putting on my grill...
