Recalled meat lands in more than 170 school districts

Possibly tainted meat from last week?s massive California recall has reached more than 170 New Jersey school districts, according to the state department of agriculture.

Officials at Woodbridge school district, which has 73 cases of the frozen beef, say they are unsure how much of the meat has been consumed by students. The district says it will destroy all of the meat in accordance to health department protocol.

The Woodbridge superintendent says there have been no reports of any sickness. New Jersey districts large and small have been affected by the class 2 recall, which indicates a low probability of anyone getting sick.

Districts in possession of less than 50 lbs. of meat may dispose of it on school premises, but those with more must call on local health officials to help get rid of it, incinerate the meat or put in a landfill.
