A couple weeks ago, the lawsuit between BPI, the maker of lean finely textured beef (LFTB), aka "pink slime", and ABC news finally came to an end after the two parties agreed to an settlement for an undisclosed amount of money (here's one summary from CNN).
Here's another story from Inside Sources that touches on the economic impacts of the original ABC news coverage. They reached out to me for comment and you can read a tad bit of what I had to say at the link above.
Better yet, check out the chapter in my book 2016 Unnaturally Delicious entitled "Waste Not Want Not." In that chapter, I talked about the history of BPI and it's founder Eldon Roth, the technology used in creating LFTB, some intriguing background on how BPI wound up in the documentary Food, Inc., and more. Here are the law few paragraphs from that chapter.
