Chicago Tribune: Meat-processing company gets chewed up in ‘pink slime’ uproar

Chicago Tribune columnist Phil Rosenthal offers a balanced viewpoint on BPI’s processing of lean beef trimmings.

“The more people are disconnected with their food supply and the sources of their food, the more questions they will have, and we understand that,” said Craig Letch, director of food safety and quality assurance for South Dakota-based Beef Products Inc. But, “We don’t produce ‘pink slime.’ We produce 100 percent quality lean beef. That’s it. That whole thing is a farce. There’s no substance to it.”
