What's in the pink stuff?

Most people have seen the photo of the pink yuck that goes into many processed chicken products. The same thing is done with beef and pork.

But a photo of something that doesn't look appetizing isn't enough to keep most people from eating it. Neither is the fact that there's so much bacteria that the meat mix is washed with ammonia. Nor the fact that artificial flavorings have to be added because the ammonia makes the mix taste so bad.

Are we so addicted to processed food flavors that knowing all this doesn't spark a change in someone's eating habits?
