Beef Products Inc. (BPI) is the company that makes "pink slime."
BPI said it will be laying off 86 employees from its South Dakota corporate office because of a "campaign of misinformation."
This is their second round of layoffs since all the negative publicity surrounded its gross beef product.
The company and outside food-safety companies declare "pink slime" safe to eat, but it was just too gross for most people when they found out what it was actually made of.
Which is basically a bunch of yuck. Gross.
This round of layoffs is nothing compared to the initial 650 people who lost their jobs at three plants.
We feel really badly that people had to lose their jobs but we still feel like it's good that we know where our food is coming from and that the general public can cause real change.
