Guam - The Department of Education is reviewing its contract with King's Restaurant in the wake of last week's food poisoning out break that sent close to 200 students to the Guam Memorial Hospital and Naval Hospital. According to DOE deputy superintendent of finance Taling Taitano, the feds are fully aware of what happened last week.

She said, "We continue to keep USDA in the loop and there are provisions in the contract that talk about in a case where there is a problem with the food, in some instances we may not have to pay the contractor so there are some remedies in the contract that we would work."

DOE officials say the food service contract with King's is about $7 million. Public Health meanwhile continues to wait for the results of the testing being done both locally and in a lab in Hawaii, which will confirm if the food served is to blame for the outbreak.
