Columbus Co. Schools suspends use of USDA beef

COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — There’s no “pink slime” on the menu in Columbus County Schools. The school district has suspended use of beef from the USDA.

Superintendent Alan Faulk says the district decided to stop using the USDA beef in the last few weeks after reports surfaced that the beef contains lean finely textured beef. LFTB, or “pink slime,” is a filler made of beef scraps treated with ammonia to kill bacteria.

Faulk said his food services staff told him just by looking at the packages the beef comes in you can’t tell if it contains LFTB. The district has decided to get its beef from another distributor.

Pender is the only county school district in our area that says it uses USDA beef with LFTB.
