Beef Products Cuts Additional 86 Jobs Amid ‘Pink Slime’ Backlash

Beef Products Inc., the maker of a meat product dubbed “pink slime” by food activists, said it is cutting another 86 jobs. Earlier this month, the company said more than 650 positions will be eliminated with the closing of three of its four plants.

The new job losses are “directly attributable to a widespread campaign of misinformation” about the company’s ammonia-treated beef, Dakota Dunes, South Dakota-based BPI said today in an e-mailed statement. The cuts announced today include corporate staff in South Dakota and reductions at the company’s machine shop and assembly facility in South Sioux City, Nebraska.

The company announced earlier this month that it is shutting plants in Amarillo, Texas; Garden City, Kansas; and Waterloo, Iowa, with job cuts effective May 25.
