478 pallets of warehoused Gerber food intended for Katrina Children must now be destroyed

FromGovernment Security News:

FEMA issued a one-sentence solicitation notice last week indicating
that it needed to dispose of 478 pallets of “contaminated food
products” sitting in a warehouse in Fort Worth, TX.

But, when pressed byGSN for more details, FEMA
eventually said its original description of the food as contaminated
was “inaccurate” and that a large quantity of Gerber finger foods and
snack packs originally intended for the children of Hurricane Katrina
victims had been “exposed to infestation hazards” and would be
“destroyed through our normal GSA disposal process.”

FEMA said, “No one consumed the food.”

  1. “exposed to infestation hazards” – hmmmm, intentionally? And if indeed ‘accidentally’ – “noone could have foreseen…”
    Like I needed yet another reason to hate the asshats running this organization and country…into the ground.
    Dammit!!! Damn them!!!

  2. And why were these not distributed to either NOLA or later disasters before they were exposed to infestation?
    If the grocery store can store things safely, why can’t DHS?

  3. You have to sympathize with FEMA. They did their best, but just couldn’t find enough nice white children in NOLA to give that food to. Maybe the next disaster will be in a place more suitable.
