Public School Students Served 6 Year Old Lunch Meat

This week it was reported that children in Tennessee public schools were being served lunch meat that was 6 years old.

Apparently there was a problem with the food at Hawkins County Schools for a long time, but someone from Joseph Rogers Primary School recently sent a photo to Hawkins County Commissioner Michael Herrell, showing the expired meat and sparking an investigation.

The county denies that the food was served at this specific school, but admits that the meat was served at other schools. It is unclear who took the photo, but if the food was actually not served at this school then it is possible that an employee took the photo and refused to serve the food.

It was confirmed that this meat was served at Cherokee High School last week, but Harrell admits that the meat was served at other schools as well.

"Here in Hawkins County, we have a lot of kids that go to school and that might be the only meal they get all day long. It just upsets me that these kids are going to school to get that meat," Herrell said.

Herrell told reporters that one of the workers in the caffeteria told him "that it smelled so bad they made gravy to put over the meat."

"I heard that McPheeter’s Bend, cooked the meat there (and) that the smell was so bad the school had the smell all through the school," Herrell said.

"There was some meat that was in our freezers with dates of 2009, 2010, 2011," Hawkins County Director of Schools Steve Starnes said.
