Know what's less safe for our nation's children than fast-food? Their school lunch! A recent investigation by USA Today found that the meat sold to U.S. school cafeterias faces less testing and lower safety standards than the meat that's served in most fast-food restaurants — outlets that aren't otherwise known for their health consciousness and are as cost-conscious as the most passionate deficit hawk.
That's right: McDonalds, KFC, and Jack in the Box test the ground beef they buy five to 10 times more frequently than the USDA tests beef for U.S. school lunches! And these fast-food restaurants have for years refused to buy certain kinds of lower-quality meat and chicken which the USDA continues to accept.
Tell the USDA to adopt higher standards and put our children's safety first!
