The USDA has issued a government food service product recall impacting federal school lunch programs.   Upon notification of the federal recall, all affected products in our food service facilities were immediately removed and destroyed.  Prior to the notification from the USDA, McCreary Central High School students and staff were offered Apple Crisp, or Blueberry Cobbler prepared with the identified products in the first lunch service only on Friday, January 11, 2019.  These items were prepared with flour identified by the USDA as potentially contaminated with salmonella.  Again, these arepotentially contaminated products and were identified and destroyed per the government's protocol for food safety.  

 

If your child exhibits any symptoms from the potential contamination from these federal food times, please consult with your local physician.
