The U.S. Department of Agriculture decided to allow school districts to stop using it. Some retail chains have pulled products containing it. The company said its entire operation is at risk and thousands of jobs are at stake. BPI co-owner Regina Roth defended her family's innovation -- in front of dozens of employees at their Nebraska plant. The company called the product lean finely textured beef.
