Wendy’s ran ads in the New York Times, USA Today, Los Angeles Times and other publications, letting its customers know the company only uses 100 percent beef.
The state Agriculture Department has notified school districts it will only offer beef without the ammonia-treated filler, as per federal directives.
It’s used as filler in low-grade ground beef. In fact, it looks like ground beef but comes from slaughterhouse trimmings. You’ve probably had some if you’ve ever eaten a bargain burger.
