“Pink Slime” Maker Alleges Defamation By ABC News In $1.2 Billion Suit

September 13, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
ABC News, several of its top anchor and reporting personnel, and two federal government scientists are being sued for $1.2 billion by a maker of a textured beef product dubbed by the media as “pink slime”. Beef Products, Inc., which manufactures a lean, finely textured beef (LFTB), alleged that ABC News misled American consumers to believe the use of boneless lean beef trimmings in processed meat is unhealthy and unsafe. Also included in the defamation suit is the former corporate quality assurance manager at Beef Products, who was the apparent source  for the story.
