Suspected spoiled food delivered to prison

Guam - The Department of Corrections will be meeting with its vendor to get to the bottom of why hundreds of spoiled meals were delivered to the Mangilao compound over the weekend.

Prison officials suspect cabbage could've spoiled hundreds of meals at the island's prison Sunday afternoon.

According to director Jose San Agustin, the spaghetti meals were sent back and replaced by the vendor within the hour.

"570 meals were delivered to Mangilao for lunch yesterday. In the process of the duty officer inspecting the contents of the meal, they found out that the meals were spoiled. It was spaghetti with ground beef, yellow onions, and cabbage. What they did was they called the vendor and let them know that the meals were spoiled and requested that they be replaced," he explained.

San Agustin speculates that if the meals were hot and placed in containers that condensation may have resulted in their spoilage.

He added that this is the second time this sort of incident has occurred with the vendor.

The director will be meeting with food services contractor Liqun Corporation on Tuesday morning for more information.
