Niman, owner of BN Ranch, which is known for its grass-fed beef products, was
forced to dispose of grass-fed beef valued at $400,000 because of a recall of
possibly tainted beef processed at Rancho Feeding. Niman was able to give some
of the meat to family and friends, but 60,000 lbs. of beef was sent to a
rendering plant for disposal, according to news reports. A federal investigation
led to the recall of more than 8.7 million lbs. of meat products.
