The article contains nothing related to that company.
Now the company sent me an email saying I am responsible for the comments and I can be charged for slander and asked me to remove all references to the company.
I know and understand that I have to ask for a professional help but any of your opinions will be useful until then. What do you think ?

You will be told sooner or later that once you edit UGC, your liability is magnified, because anything you didn't edit has your tacit approval. I'd err on the side of caution and avoid expense.
What is your country?
You might also look into adding "example.com does not review or edit commentary submitted to this site." if you have no desire to manage/moderate comments. However, that will not relieve you of final responsibility for providing the forum and the need to address any requests such as DCMA (or other country versions), Liability, or Slander (most countries). AND, if ignored, might see your site shut down by the host should THEY recieve those requests.
