Chinese Chicken and Schools

A bipartisan group of Congressmen are asking that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) keep poultry slaughtered in China from being exported to the U.S. and that Chinese-processed chicken be kept out of the U.S. schools.  The members are asking that Congress use the fiscal year 2014 agriculture appropriations legislation to prohibit Chinese-processed chicken from being served in the National School Lunch Program, the School Breakfast Program, the Child and Adult Care Food Program, and the Summer Food Service Program.  Members signing the letter included Congressmen Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), and Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE).
