    It's beef the same way my leather shoes are beef. It was once part of a cow.

    Yes - it is beef - really !

    To make the meat supply safer a genius named Eldon Roth came up with a way to treat lean finely textured beef (a beef product used in hamburger and processed meat products) with ammonium hydroxide which then dissipated completely. This process kills the pathogens in the meat, making it safer. A celebrity chef decided he didn't like the perfectly safe process and in kneejerk reaction McD's and some other burger places stopped using the Lean finely textured beef, making food more expensive, and less safe.
