5. Calling it pink slime simply drew attention to what it actually was.

And what it actually was was scraps of beef fat which had fallen on the floor or were otherwise inedible being ground up, sanitized with ammonia, heated to remove some fat and pureed into a pink slime, the mixed with actual ground beef to hide it.

I could call hamburger pink slime, but people wouldn't stop buying it because they know it's not ammonia laced fat scraps.
