ABC Pink Slime Lawsuit

We would have loved to have seen the look on ABC News' face when they heard that a major U.S. beef processing company is suing them over their coverage of pink slime.

You know, that disgusting additive in a ton of meat? Well, that USED to be in a ton of meat… a lot of the pink slime plants couldn't survive after being exposed!

They're suing for $1.2 billion — claiming the network's coverage of a product called "pink slime" has duped consumers into believing it's unhealthy and unsafe.

In reality, regardless of that it's still suuuuuper gross.

They say ABC News made somewhere around 200 "false and misleading and defamatory" statements about the product.

Here's what the BPI attorney had to say:

"[The ABC News reports have] caused consumers to believe that our lean beef is not beef at all — that it's an unhealthy pink slime, unsafe for public consumption, and that somehow it got hidden in the meat."

Either that or consumers just started to recognize how awfully unappetizing the product is, and don't want it to be a part of what they're eating.

A rep for ABC responded:

"The lawsuit is without merit. We will contest it vigorously."

LOLz!

Nice try, pink slimers! This desperate attempt is tooooo late!
