Ohio: 2nd fine levied against prison food vendor
By ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS, AP Legal Affairs Writer | July 30, 2014 | Updated: July 30, 2014 4:46pm

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The state on Wednesday announced a second fine against the private vendor that took over the job of feeding inmates last year as the company defended its operations before a prisons oversight committee.

The $130,200 fine against Philadelphia-based Aramark Correctional Services covered continued staffing shortages, unacceptable food substitutions and shortages and sanitation issues, including maggots observed in food service operations at five prisons this month and last, according to Ohio's July 23 letter to the company.

"There were and there are remaining concerns," Gary Mohr, director of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, told members of the Correctional Institution Inspection Committee.

1. Why are they still using Aramark Correctional Services?

If you catch them TWICE, why in the hell are they even still in the equation? Somebody's getting kickbacks, and that person should do prison time. When you catch a crook twice flagrantly violating safe food practices, you FIRE THEIR ASSES and hire a more reputable firm.

2. my last employer still uses these nasty people for the cafateria

They gave me food poisoning twice in a 6 month period and I ate nothing from them for 2 months after the first episode. Each time it cost me an 8 hour shift at overtime rates.
These people can fuck up a burger and fries.

Spoiled food, not enough food, maggots, and inappropriate relations with inmates. What does champion of privatization Republican governor Snyder have to say? He has "concerns" about the issues. Concerns.
