'Pink Slime'


FILE - This undated file photo provided by Beef Products Inc., shows the company's ammonia-treated filler, known in the industry as "lean, finely textured beef," a lower-cost ingredient made from fatty bits of meat left over from other cuts. Acknowledging that recent public concern has cost it business, Beef Products Inc., the company that makes the beef ingredient dubbed “pink slime” by critics, suspended operations at three of its four plants Monday, March 26, 2012. A company spokesman said business took a substantial hit when retailers decided they no longer wanted to use the product in their ground beef. (AP Photo/Beef Products Inc.)
