Lawmakers, BPI Founders Defend Beef Additive

Lawmakers, BPI Founders Defend Beef Additive
SOUTH SIOUX CITY, NE -

Leaders from five states wrapped up a tour of a northeast Nebraska plant that's been making national headlines for a controversial product.

This item made by Beef Products Incorporated in Dakota Dunes has been around for 20 years and is in nearly 70 percent of ground beef.  But national headlines and critics of lean, finely, textured beef call it 'pink slime,' which led major restaurants and stores to pull the product of shelves.

That led BPI to close three of its four plants this week because of a lack of product demand.  The only plant that's still in operation is in South Sioux City, Nebraska.

On Thursday, a group of governors, including South Dakota Lieutenant Governor Matt Michels, toured the plant.  After the tour, they held a news conference where some of them ate burgers with the product in it. 

The founders of BPI also defended the product in their meat.
