Safer School Lunch

I think this is an appropriate topic considering all the school lunch talk this week. I guess I am naive, but I think it's crazy that schools were serving beef from companies with poor safety records in the first place. That should never have been acceptable!

FROM NBC:School lunches should soon be safer -- thanks to new standards from the United States Department of Agriculture. U.S.D.A. officials announced ground beef purchased for federal food and nutrition programs -- including school lunches -- will need to meet new safety standards. Testing protocols will be tightened, samples will be tested more often, and the limits that determine whether meat is acceptable or not will improve.

Companies with long term poor safety records will be ineligible vendors until more research is done.
These new standards will be applied to contracts awarded after July 1st, 2010. These new standards are part of a larger overhaul announced in February that are designed to improve the safety of school lunches.
