NY Times Prints Meat Association Letter

National Meat Association Director of Communications Jeremy Russell wrote a letter to the editor published in Sunday’s New York Times that took exception to an article that questioned the efficacy of Beef Products Inc.’s ammonia treatment of beef to kill pathogens, and a subsequent editorial on the same topic.

“Instead of encouraging efforts to improve food safety, you demonize a company that had the courage to invest in innovative technology proved to be effective in reducing dangerous pathogens,” Russell wrote. “Beef Products Inc.’s rate of positives is well below industry averages.”

The remainder of the short letter is available here.
