AMI President and CEO J. Patrick Boyle is scheduled to appear on CNN’s Larry King Live tonight (9 p.m. EST) as part of a panel discussion on meat safety and nutrition.  According to CNN’s Web site, the show is entitled, “Beef: Safe or Scary?”

The segment is being prompted by the recent New York Times article on ground beef safety by investigative reporter Michael Moss that ran on October 4 ("Woman's Shattered Life Shows Ground Beef Inspection Flaws").

Other scheduled panelists for tonight’s show include former U.S. Under Secretary of Agriculture for Food Safety Elsa Murano, Ph.D. and attorney Bill Marler. 

King’s web site is currently conducting a poll of visitors asking “Do you eat meat? Yes or No?”   The Web page currently shows 19 percent of visitors claiming they do not eat meat, though the site includes a disclaimer that the poll is not scientific.
