F pink slime

I am not sure why so many people seemed to be surprised, much less up in arms about the pink slime revelation.  No one had to tell me that if I can get a burger on a bun for a $1 but that you can’t find meat that cheap at a supermarket, that it’s probably not meat.  No one had to tell me that the chicken-flavored product that looks like a sponge with fake grill-marks was not really chicken or ribs.  No one had to tell me that McNugget with their grisly texture, no meat with striations, was not really chicken.  How does one just come to realize what ‘processed meat’ means? It seems as long as there wasn’t actual evidence to sere the image into out minds it was okay.
