LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) ā€” Cargill has added wording to its ground beef package labels to say whether they include the product that’s been called “pink slime.”

The Lincoln Journal Star says (http://bit.ly/1g9Wjyb ) the company announced in November that it would be adding the labeling. Cargill says bulk packages and some ground beef chubs bear labels that say, “Contains Finely Textured Beef.”

Another company that makes the product, Beef Products Inc., sued ABC news in September 2012 after ABC aired a story that used the phrase “pink slime.” The company says ABC’s story misled consumers into believing the product is unhealthy and unsafe. The company says it lost business and had to close plants in Texas, Kansas and Iowa. It kept open a Nebraska plant.

Beef Products Inc. is based in South Dakota.
