BPI Plans 'Pink Slime' Defamation Lawsuit

September 12, 2012, 9:02 PM

BPI Plans 'Pink Slime' Defamation Lawsuit
LINCOLN, NE -

Beef Products Inc. plans to file a defamation lawsuit in the wake of a publicity storm over a meat product that critics have dubbed "pink slime."

The Dakota Dunes based company said Wednesday that it will announce a lawsuit Thursday. A company executive and lawyer refused to name the defendant.

Company officials have long insisted that the product is safe and healthy, and blamed the closure of three plants and roughly 700 layoffs on what they viewed as a smear campaign.

The lean, textured beef trimmings were the subject of many media reports earlier this year, and also have drawn comments from television chefs and food commentators. The term "pink slime" was coined by a former U.S. Department of Agriculture microbiologist.
