Guam - The culprit was undercooked cabbage.

According to Department of Corrections director Jose San Agustin, he met with the prison's food vendor, Liqun Corporation, on Tuesday. There they discussed why the vendor delivered suspected spoiled meals on Sunday afternoon.

San Agustin states the vendor confirmed the cabbage may not have been fully cooked because they cook in bulk and that condensation helped result in the spoilage.

As we previously reported, prisoners experienced an hour delay for lunch on Sunday after prison officials sent the spaghetti meals back.

Meanwhile, San Agustin confirms the prison will work closer with the vendor, whose 5-year contract is set to expire in 2017.
