(Newser) – Apparently everyone isn't grossed out by the much-discussed pink slime: Indeed, some customers are demanding it. Thus the 235-store Hy-Vee grocery chain has decided to sell ground beef with and without the product, also called lean, finely textured beef, the Iowa City Press-Citizen reports. Residents of cities that produce pink slime—like South Sioux City, Nebraska—complained when Hy-Vee last week announced it wouldn't sell beef which includes the substance, the company said. (Who else wants to eat it? Governors.)
