ABC News wants “pink slime” lawsuit in federal court

Beef Products Inc. is suing the news network for defamation over its series of reports on lean finely textured beef

ABC News, which is embroiled in a multi-million dollar defamation lawsuit over a series of reports on so-called “pink slime” beef products, asked Wednesday to transfer the case to federal court.

Beef Products Inc. (BPI), a leading processor of lean finely textured beef (LFTB), sued the news network in South Dakota state court last month, arguing that its sales plummeted after ABC used the stomach-churning “pink slime” moniker in reference to its product.
