PINK SLIME SAFE?
The makers of the controversial meat filler otherwise known as "pink slime" says its product is getting a bad rap. They held a tour of their production plant for several big wigs from the government and food safety groups to show them it's perfectly safe to eat. So when the tour was over...what did those officials think? We'll tell you at 5.
ANIMALS ADDICTED TO I-PHONES
We know humans can't get enough of their mobile devices and some even sleep with them...but wait till you see the video of some animals struggling to put down an i-phone! It must be a good game of "Angry Birds"! We'll have that story at 5:30.
