"Pink Slime" the other side of the story 650 jobs lost

Posted May 8th, 2012 by iamodd999

Three of the controversial factories that produced the so-called ‘pink slime’ that disgusted the nation will close later this month.
Roughly 650 jobs will be lost when the plants in Texas, Kansas and Iowa are closed by parent company Beef Products Inc. in light of poor sales.
The plant in Amarillo, Texas, the plant in Garden City, Kansas, and the one in Waterloo, Iowa will close on May 25. A plant in South Sioux City, Nebraska, will remain open but run at reduced capacity.
The South Dakota-based company blamed the closures on what it said were unfounded attacks over its lean, finely textured beef
'The fact that a false, misleading smear campaign can destroy a company's reputation overnight should disturb us all.'
