The Galt Joint Union Elementary School District will no longer serve ground beef in its cafeterias after the United States Department of Agriculture was unable to confirm whether or not it contained the meat cut commonly known as "pink slime."

While the official name is "lean finely textured beef," or LFTB, critics who dubbed it pink slime say it's an unappetizing example of industrialized food production. The term was coined by a federal microbiologist who was grossed out by it, but the product meets federal food safety standards and has been used for years in not only school cafeterias but large chain food establishments.
