Subject: Tell your Representative: Urge the USDA to keep pink slime out of school lunches

Dear Friend,

Thanks to public pressure, the USDA announced Thursday that starting next fall, they would allow schools to choose whether or not to include pink slime beef filler in their school lunches.

That's a positive sign that USDA is feeling vulnerable on pink slime, but it's not good enough. Pink slime should be fully eliminated from the National School Lunch Program.

Now is the time to keep the pressure building. Maine Rep. Chellie Pingree has written a letter to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack and is asking other members of congress to sign on.

I just signed a petition asking my Representative to co-sign Rep. Pingree's letter to USDA. You can learn more and sign the petition here:
