What do you know about your school dinner? Is it 100% hygienic and are they all suitable to be eaten? How much do you trust your catering services?
As you’ve heard in the last couple of weeks there’s been a lot of horsemeat or any different meat mixed up with the normal food. Irish food inspectors found horsemeat in frozen beef burgers in mid-January, and it has been sold across many supermarkets e.g. Tesco, Iceland and Lidl, as reported on the Huffington Post and elsewhere.
For the past few weeks we have been heavily focusing on the school dinners.
We asked a number of Kingsburians what they felt about the food they were eating.
Adam said that he felt safe eating the veggie food from the canteen but didn’t really trust them with the other meat products. Many Kingsburians agreed with this.
We interviewed Mr J Waxman about his views on the horsemeat scandal.
Q) What do you think of the horsemeat scandal?
A) The big issue was that people were sold meat labelled with something but inside it was contaminated with other meat. If you buy something it should contain what is on the label.
Q) Do you think our school dinners are contaminated with horsemeat?
A) We do not have any evidence that our school dinners contain any sort of horsemeat. It is the catering services responsibility to make sure there’s not horsemeat in our school dinner.
Is it 100% hygienic? Are they all suitable to be eaten? How much do you trust your catering services? I think our school dinners are 100% hygienic and we trust our catering services. They are fully responsible for our food.
