The FDA, a government agency who's charge is:

protecting the public health by assuring the safety, effectiveness, and security of human and veterinary drugs, vaccines and other biological products, medical devices, our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, dietary supplements, and products that give off radiation

Among the things they regulate:
foods, except for most meat and poultry products, which are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture

Their leader is:

Dr. Margaret Ann Hamburg (born July 12, 1955, Chicago, Illinois) is an American physician and medical/public health administrator. She currently serves as Commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

She has served as Vice President for Biological Programs, Nuclear Threat Initiative, Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation of U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the New York City Commissioner of Health. She was nominated in March 2009 by President Barack Obama to become the Commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration,[1] and was sworn in on May 22, 2009.[2]

Dr. Margaret Hamburg is the daughter of Dr. Beatrix Hamburg and Dr. David A.Hamburg, both physicians. Her mother, Beatrix, was the first African-American woman to attend Vassar College and to earn a degree from the Yale University School of Medicine (which had previously excluded black students). Her father, David, of Jewish descent, had a career in academic medicine and mental illness research, public policy, and philanthropic leadership. She is married to artificial intelligence researcher Peter Fitzhugh Brown, with whom she has two children.[3]

She reports to:

Kathleen Sebelius - Sebelius served as executive director and chief lobbyist for the Kansas Trial Lawyers Association (now Kansas Association for Justice) from 1977–1986. She was first elected to the Kansas House of Representatives in 1986. She was Gov. of Kansas and POTUS Obama appointed her to run the Department of Health and Human Services.

Both agency leaders were appointed by POTUS Obama and their nominations were approved by the Democratic controlled Senate.

Now how in the world could any lobbying hanky panky take place with good Progressive democrats appointed by Dear Leader to watch over our health and safety?

Pink slime treated with ammonia to kill pathogens has been in our food a helluva lot longer than Obama has been in office. It's not a red or blue thing. It's a green thing.

The Pink Slime wasn't banned by mcdonalds and other places because it was unhealthy or dangerous. They banned it because people found out and there was a public outcry.

It's the private industry that makes it. It's the private industry that bullies scientists into saying it was safe.

Conclusion? It's private industries fault.
