'Pink slime': Kroger joins others in dropping beef product
Michael MuskalKroger Co., the nation’s largest supermarket retailer, on Thursday joined the growing list of companies that have dropped the beef product widely referred to as pink slime from their fresh meat cases.
Both Kroger and the Stop & Shop chain said they would no longer sell fresh meat containing the product, known by the industry as lean finely textured beef. On Wednesday, supermarket chains Safeway, Supervalu and Food Lion said they would stop selling fresh meat containing the product because of widespread consumer concerns in the wake of media reports. Kroger operates the Ralphs and Food 4 Less chains in Southern California.
