Forth Worth Schools Receive Recalled Beef

February 26, 2008

Forth Worth, Texas school officials say they found beef recalled from a California slaughterhouse in the district’s freezers and will destroy it.

The Fort Worth district checked on the safety of 158,000 pounds of beef and discovered that it had some that needed to be destroyed, according to spokesman Clint Bond.

On Sunday, the U.S. Department of Agriculture recalled 143 million pounds of beef from a California slaughterhouse because of evidence that the plant violated health regulations. More than one-third of the meat was sent to school lunch programs.

Fort Worth schools won’t include beef on the lunch menu until after spring break in late March, Bond said.
