There was some good news yesterday that Beef Products Inc, one of the producers of Lean Finely Textured Beef, also known as Pink Slime, has stopped making so much of the stuff. This article by Helena Bottemiller, who has been writing about his story for Food Safety News notes that the workers have not been laid off and are still getting their pay and benefits. Hopefully BPI will find other stuff for them to do! The rejection of this disgusting “food” additive is a great example of how consumers can talk with the power of where they spend or don’t spend their hard earned money.
