Boston Schools Cafeteria Investigation Reveals Expired Food From 2009

Posted: Updated:

Boston City Councilor John Connolly chose four random public schools in the city for a surprise cafeteria inspection. What he found horrified Boston residents.

School kitchens had expired foods still stocked, some from 2009, WHDH News reports. However, the food products, such as beef and cheese, that were being used were kept frozen.

The expired frozen foods may not be making children sick, but what are students getting out of their school lunches?

According to The Boston Globe, Connolly explained,

"We're not talking about salmonella and E. coli. But we are talking about food that has likely lost much of its nutritional value."
