An article on Eagnews.com reports: “Meat dating to the year of President Obama’s first inauguration was served to students in some Hawkins County, Tennessee schools last week. Hawkins County Commissioner Michael Herrell was alerted after a cafeteria worker sent him a photo of the pork roast they used for school meals was from 2009. The 6-year-old meat had been frozen and then was thawed for meal preparation, according to WCYB.”
“Herrell said the photo was taken at Joseph Rogers Primary School where the staff decided not to serve the meat. However, it was served at other schools. Cherokee Comprehensive High School , for example, served the pork after a debate.”
Among whom? How does one “debate” over whether or not to serve six year old meat to children? You could argue the meat was frozen, but long-term freezing can’t possibly be good for the flavor of meat, and pork is very sensitive to how it’s stored and can go bad much more quickly than other meat.
“According to Herrell, the woman at Cherokee High who was concerned about it said the meat smelled so bad they made gravy to put over it to give it a better smell and taste, WBIR reported.”
They used to do stuff like that in the Middle Ages, before the invention of refrigeration. That’s why spices were so valuable for hundreds of years.
The article continues “Director of Schools Steve Starnes learned about the issue on April 23rd and said that the meat passed their tests. Starnes said, ‘There were some meats with dates of 2009, 10, 11 in the freezer. Our child nutrition supervisor had the cafeteria managers look at the meat, do the tests, and see if it was OK. The decision was made to serve it.’”
“However, WCYB reports that, according to USDA guidelines, uncooked meat should be frozen only up to 12 months. While so far there are no reported illnesses tied to the meat, the Board of Education Chair says they’re not sure how many of the more than 7,000 students in the district actually ate the outdated pork.”
The Obamas are all about patronage with a dash of nanny-state Marxism to hide the corruption, just like spice.
Michelle was given authority over school lunches, apparently with little to no supervision, which creates a huge opportunity for patronage, bribery and corruption. This is no doubt her reward for being Obama’s obedient wife so that people don’t start speculating about those Gay rumors that keep swirling around Obama so persistently.
As soon as Obama’s second term is over, it’s likely splitsville for Barack and Michelle as if their separate vacations don’t indicate a split already. Michelle will need her own financial resources then, and don’t be surprised if the Obama school lunch program doesn’t make her rich.
How else can you explain why millions of children have been forced to eat unappetizing lunches for years now, with rotten biscuits and bugs in the broccoli as well as meat way over the expiration date? Someone is allowing substandard food providers to play a big role in school lunches, and the most likely culprit is Michelle Obama.
