Cargill to label ground beef with "pink slime" added

Recommended Posts

McDonald's Kroger and other customers had dropped meat containing the ammonia washed scraps material in the face of public outrage.

 

NY Times:

 

 

 

“Our research shows that consumers believe ground beef products containing finely textured beef should be clearly labeled,” John Keating, president of Cargill’s beef operations, said in a statement. “We’ve listened to the public, as well as our customers, and that is why today we are declaring our commitment to labeling finely textured beef.”

ABC News has settled with South Dakota meat processors over an ABC report about finely ground meat particles. The amount was not publicly disclosed. The meat people asked for about $1.9 billion.

 

In its recent quarterly filing, Disney acknowledged costs of $177 million for settled litigation, above amounts covered by insurance. Counsel for the meat people indicated the amount was larger, without giving details.

 

Don't use the term "pink slime" and don't misrepresent the benefits of this fine product.
