FOOD LION STATEMENT ON NBC APOLOGY

 SALISBURY, N.C., Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Food Lion, Inc., issued the following statement:
 Food Lion, Inc., applauds NBC News for having the decency to apologize for faking a television news event. We wish ABC News had the same sense of decency.
 NBC News has admitted to rigging safety tests of General Motors trucks for its tabloid television program, NBC "Dateline." Food Lion and its employees were also slandered last November during sweeps week by "Prime Time Live" through a similar misrepresentation of the facts.
 ABC News knows it committed fraud to sneak ABC producers into our stores posing as employees. They know they made false and sensational charges. They know they slandered Food Lion's innocent employees, damaged Food Lion's reputation and hurt shareholder value. And they know we can prove fraud.
 Food Lion's lawsuit against ABC News continues. In the meantime, ABC News, apologize. You owe it to the American public. Show some decency.
