Grady schools dispose of beef

February 20, 2008

Cairo-- Some south Georgia schools were affected by the country's largest beef recall in history.   Wednesday morning 23 cases of the bad beef were buried in the Cairo landfill.

The meat had been sold to 5 schools in the Grady County school system to be used for sloppy joes and spaghetti meat. Some of the affected 37 school systems in Georgia have been getting the recalled beef for the last 2 years.

Rhonda Keve, Nutrition Director for Grady County Schools says, "Before then, we can't do anything about that. But once we received the notification none of that was ever served to a child. Because our number one priority is to serve safe nutritious food."

Keve says they're filling out paperwork to hopefully be reimbursed for the recalled beef that had to be destroyed.
