Let them eat expired food

Posted By on Tue, Sep 28, 2010 at 1:13 PM

Geez. As we hear constantly, food in the public schools is about as unhealthy as it can be. Most of it contributes to the childhood obesity that has become epidemic. Safety is a major issue too.

Now, it turns out, Marietta schools are serving students long-expired food, according to CBSAtlanta:

After a CBS Atlanta investigation raised Tough Questions about the safety of food being served at Marietta City Schools, the school system found expired food in two of the district's dozen schools.

The admission in a letter from Superintendent Dr. Emily Lembeck Monday night. The actual letter appears [as PDF file in the sidebar of the site's article].

The allegations are being made by Howard Clotfelter, a former food warehouse manager for Marietta City Schools. He's breaking his silence about what he said is a dirty secret he fears could make children sick.

"My personal concern is you're talking about 7,000 kids being served this product," said Clotfelter.
