"Pink slime" maker AFA files for bankruptcy


King of Prussia, Pa. (WKOW) -- A company that makes lean, finely textured beef, or what's become more commonly known as "pink slime," has filed for bankruptcy.

AFA Foods is selling some of its assets because of a decrease in demand of its product. The company, based in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, says recent media coverage on "pink slime" has created "changes in the market."

Beef Products, Inc., has also experienced a significant decline in sales and closed three of its four plants last week.

Meanwhile, the governor of Iowa says he wants congress to investigate how what he calls "a smear campaign" against "pink slime" got started.
