My understanding it was the term " pink slime" and the defamation of BPI
The preferred term is "lean finely textured beef,"
However, even with assurances that the ingredient, made from the trimmings of a cow and treated with ammonia to kill bacteria

It may be safe to eat but do I unknowingly want it in my ground beef
Lots of parts of beef that I don't want to eat or to be ground up and sold to me as hamburger meat

What did abc say that was fake?
Not defending abc. Just wondering

Just the way they hyped the whole "pink slime" angle Andy, not unlike the constant drum beat of "Russian influence on our election" when there is no real proof of it. Overall it's part of the fake media narrative.

Exactly
The term pink slime thus resulting in a loss of sales ?

Pink slime" (a dysphemism for lean finely textured beef or LFTB,[1] finely textured beef,[2] and boneless lean beef trimmings or BLBT[3]) is a meat by-product used as a food additive to ground beef and beef-based processed meats, as a filler, or to reduce the overall fat content of ground beef.[4][5] In the production process, heat and centrifuges remove fat from the meat in beef trimmings.[6] The resulting paste is exposed to ammonia gas or citric acid to kill bacteria.[6] In 2001, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved the product for limited human consumption. LFTB prepared using ammonia gas is banned for human consumption in Canada[7] and the European Union.[8]

I guess you're right, ABC settle because they are nice guys.



I would say as stated above
" Pink slime" (a dysphemism for lean finely textured beef or LFTB,[1] finely textured beef"
The term and defamation resulting in the loss of business for a product that is legal for consumption in the USA

I think they knew they were going to lose and negotiated a deal they could live with

I'm not a fan of anything that gets blasted off the bone using an ammonia solution.

To each his own slick, I loves me some ammonia.

Do you think ABC would have been sued had they explained that ammonia has been used for thousands of years to preserve meat?

Do you think they would have been sued had they explained the Texan who invented this industrial process was mimicking natural processes which reduce salmonella and e-coli threats while thus reducing waste and making food cheaper?

Wonder if ABC would have been sued had they talked about how this man discovered a way to freeze meat in minutes rather than hours thus saving energy thus reducing the company's "carbon footprint"?

Do you think trying to educate the public rather than scaring the sheeple would have been good for their ratings? Or should we all just follow Chipotle's lead and just boycott any beef or beef products originating from Texas because its clear they don't know what they are doing? Apparently, ABC's attorneys didn't think they could find enough people to believe that.

The technique of using an ammonia to "freshen or preserve" meats was first brought to my attention back in the early '80's. The grocery chain called Food Lion was fairly new in the DFW area back then and was caught "freshening" chickens that had an odor to them to extend the shelf life of the birds. This was long before Pink Slime was known about. Food Lion didn't last long after that and only a few stores remain in NC from what I gather. When I had my BBQ place ammonia was not allowed in my store as a cleaner as I figured the general public would also have the aversion to it.

Not strictly. The Allen store, which was closest to me used ammonia also.

You can have all the "pink slime" you want, regardless of how safe it is.. I'll stick with good burger meat
