Morning Edition: Inadequate Health Inspections Plague School Cafeterias

The Connecticut Health Investigative Team or C-HIT has uncovered that many school cafeterias in Connecticut are not getting regular inspections as required by law.  Some schools, who were cited for various health infractions, did not even get a follow-up inspection to ensure they had resolved their health issue.  We talked to C-HIT reporter and co-founder, Lisa Chedekel about the story.

Would you serve your family

Would you serve your family burgers that were cooked one day kept in a warmer all day, refrigerated then brought out to be served another day? They do that at my son's high school, that I won't even name, but it makes me wonder, did all the inspectors at C-HIT take their health care administration degree online and barely made it past the finals, or is it in fact a conspiracy against our children's health?

schools and inspection

I don't think you need a master of science in management to figure out that kids aren't eating healthy in school cafeterias. Now you are telling me that such food providers aren't even inspected as often as they should. Well, if I was a parent and I was reading your article here, I would probably visit my kid's school the very next day.
