ABC News sued for defamation over “pink slime” reports

Beef Products Inc. says that it lost millions of dollars after the news network reported that its beef was unsafe

Earlier this year, ABC News turned the country’s collective stomach with a series of reports on the meat product dubbed “pink slime.” Now the news network is facing an unappetizing defamation lawsuit, courtesy of an angry South Dakota beef processor.

In court papers filed Thursday, Beef Products Inc. (BPI) accused ABC of falsely reporting that its product was unsafe, unhealthy and “more like gelatin than meat.”
