Did not know the slop they served was even beef to begin with? Now if they could clean up their kitchen crews that would be another story.

Is this the only district to get their meat from this company?

Are any other districts affected?
Have any other districts taken similar measures?

Are any local supermarkets affected?

As if this level of animal treatment and potential contamination aren't going on all along, before it was even caught on camera! Are the education officials uneducated?

How about a total overhaul of what is considered "healthy" in the USDA school lunch programs? The USDA gives guidelines for schools to follow, however this is certainly a minimum and not exactly healthy on many levels. Sugars, food dye, iceberg lettuce passing for salad.... Aren't our youth worth some extra effort and even money if it means improved health and lower exposure to nutritionally lacking meals?

Probably no to all. It's called grandstanding.

Go to www.youtube.com and type in the key words Westfield Hallmark Humane Society to see the video of the cow treatment. Makes you feel ill not only because of the treatment of the animals but also because we might have been eating meat that were diseased and sick. Imagine sitting at the dinner table thinking that you are eating a nice steak and instead you are ingesting filet mignon that was from a cow suffering from cancer or infected with bacteria and viruses...yuck!

Doesn't seem like much has improved since Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle". Just proves once again that Big Business only cares about your dollars, not the people.

I just got off a Carribean cruise during which time I had beef almost every night for dinner. Delicious food. There's really nothing quite like a good lean cut of beef, medium rare.....

Most of the kids don't eat there lunch at McDonalds since they are not allowed off campus during school. You're making a poor assumption.

I watched the video and I was so upset after it. I have not touched beef since then. I know I will not make a difference but I cannot be part of the cruelty of what these people do.

SH is one of the school districts that have not bidded the cafe to a food management company.One must wonder where the beef these 'for profit' organizations get the meat they are serving to our kids came from.

Can South Huntington be that dumb? One phone call to their supplier and they would know where the beef came from. Every other district received letters from their suppliers as soon as the story broke. What's up SH?
