Pink Slime: Cause for Concern for Product Recall Underwriters?

Pink slime is all over the news these days.  It is the derogatory term for “meat product made by processing leftover beef trimmings.”  In other words, it’s meat filler made from leftovers with the addition of amonia.  It sure doesn’t sound very tasty, but it’s been in use for more than 20 years.  Public concerns about its safety have led some stores to offer free refunds/recalls.  A claim to the insurers of those stores or suppliers cannot be far behind.
