Recall of tainted meat did not include beef provided to schools

Blake Morrison, Peter Eisler and Anthony DeBarros of USA Today report that a recall of tainted beef from Beef Packers of Fresno, Calif. did not include beef supplied to schools. Their investigation calls into question whether adequate steps were taken to ensure meat supplied for school lunches was safe for consumption. Beef Packers has had continued problems with contamination, yet the government continues to contract with them. They have received nearly $60 million in government contracts since 2003.
