A finely textured beef
B mechanically separated poultry

#2 Actually c is correct. Mechancially separated meats are required to be identified of food labels. Since finely textured beef is simply an extremely lean beef product, it is simply identified as 'beef' on food labels, although some companies are now identifying this uniquely in their labeling because there has been a lot of confusion between the images above. Activists, TV celebrity chefs, and shock journalists have used the derogatory term 'pink slime' to describe what's depicted in image 'A' (finely textured beef) while also in many cases presenting image 'B' as an illustration.
