New York AG Letitia James Files Lawsuit Against Worlds Largest Beef Producer for ‘Misleading Public’ About its Impact on Climate


New York Attorney General Letitia James is now seeking to punish the worlds largest producer of beef products.

A far-left judge recently ordered Trump to pay a $355 million judgment (which has now swelled to $464 million with interest) and banned Trump from doing business in New York for 3 years after Letitia James sought to destroy the former president.

James charged President Trump for taking out loans, paying them back with interest, and making money for himself and the banks.  There were no victims in the case (except Trump) and the banks said they would gladly do business with billionaire Donald Trump again.  A lawless judge in New York fined Trump the original $355 million for doing business  in New York state.

Now she’s waging a war on meatpacking giant JBS USA Foods Co. 

“The lawsuit filed in a New York state court in Manhattan seeks a $5,000 civil fine per violation of state business laws, and to recoup ill-gotten gains from false sustainability claims.” – Reuters reported.

“I’m suing @JBSFoodsUSA, the world’s largest beef producer, for misleading the public about its environmental impact,” Letitia James said on X. “The beef industry is one of the largest contributors to climate change, and JBS has falsely advertised its commitment to sustainability and endangered our planet.”

Letitia James absurdly claimed families are willing to pay more for food if their products are better for the environment.

“Families [are] willing to spend more of their hard-earned money on products from brands that are better for the environment,” James said in a statement. “JBS USA’s greenwashing exploits the pocketbooks of everyday Americans and the promise of a healthy planet for future generations.”

Reuters reported:

JBS (JBSS3.SA), opens new tab, the world’s largest beef producer, was sued on Wednesday by New York state’s attorney general, which accused it of misleading the public about its impact on the environment in order to boost sales.

Attorney General Letitia James said JBS USA Food Co, the Brazilian company’s American-based unit, has “no viable plan” to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040, making its stated commitment to achieving that goal false and misleading.

James said JBS has admitted its “Net Zero by 2040” commitment did not incorporate the vast majority of greenhouse gas emissions from its supply chain, including from deforestation in the Amazon.

She also said reaching the goal was “infeasible” given JBS’ plan to increase production and therefore its carbon footprint, on top of greenhouse gas emissions that had by 2021 exceeded those of the entire country of Ireland.
