Roughly a year ago I wrote about the nebulous nature of supermarket ground beef. In March, the story went national with ABC news leading the investigation into what, exactly, was in the ground beef packages we buy at the supermarket. The answer? It wasn’t pretty.
An unnaturally pink, ammonia treated mush using scrapings from the slaughterhouse floor is what passes for “meat” in many instances. It’s called Pink Slime.
We know this. We read the report. But now Beef Products Inc is suing ABC for $1.2 Billion for defamation and loss of profits.
Do you think this lawsuit has any merit? For the record, ABC isn’t sweating it.
