Worker suing ABC news and a few others...

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A former worker at a South Dakota beef processor who was laid off amid decreased sales of lean, finely textured beef is suing ABC News, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and a food blogger over use of the term "pink slime."

Bruce Smith was one of about 750 people who lost their jobs at Beef Products Inc. after the company took a financial hit following social media and news reports about the product.

Smith is seeking $70,000 in damages in the civil suit.

BPI earlier sued ABC News for $1.2 billion for defamation. That lawsuit it still pending.

Representatives for ABC News and Oliver did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment. Food blogger Bettina Siegel says she believes she is protected by the First Amendment.
