More Problems Linked to Aramark

Just days ago there were reports of maggots found “near” some food trays at the Parnall Correctional Facility in Jackson.  Now, it seems the bugs have invaded the food itself.  And that is prompting calls to Governor Synder to take a second look at possibly ending the service contract.

Bugs now found in the food at a Jackson prison

MLive.com is reporting today that the maggots were found in potatoes that were to be served to inmates at the Charles Egeler Reception and Guidance Center.

The warden of the Jackson facility ordered all potatoes to be removed and the kitchen area washed down with bleach.

The investigation is going beyond that, though.  This is just the latest incident involving Aramark Correctional Services, which was contracted by the Michigan Department of Corrections to provide meals in state prisons.

It came under fire earlier for not providng approved menus and not preparing enough food to serve all the inmates.

Governor Snyder put them on notice then that such incidents would not be tolerated and that any further violations of policy could result in an end to the contract.

Thirty prisoners were treated at the Parnall facility for a sickness they believe is related to the infestation.  If is unknown, however, if that is the case.  All suffered from food-poisoning like systems.
