Governors react to BPI announcement


Reaction was swift, to BPI's decision to close the three of its plants.

Iowa governor Terry Branstad called today "a sad day for the state of Iowa." He says the fact that a, quote "false, misleading smear campaign can destroy a company's reputation overnight should disturb us all."

Nebraska governor Dave Heineman maintains that LFTB is "healthy and safe." Heineman calls BPI is a "good family-owned business". He's promised to continue to work with them "to promote their safe and healthy beef."
