Nine incidents of maggots have been reported in Ohio prisons since January and now one state representative wants to fire the food service company.
Ohio State Representative Robert
Hagen wants to fire Aramark after maggots were found twice just this
week at the Ohio Reformatory for Women.
The state has taken
joint responsibility, however, since Aramark took over last year, we
found nearly 100 Aramark employees who were fired for inappropriate
Two years of food served inside Ohio prisons costs
taxpayers $110 million, whether or not the inmates eat. More maggots
means more ammo to the Ohio Civil Service Employees Association’s claims
of wrongful privatization.
“Number one there’s no accountability,” OCSEA President Christopher Mabe said. “We see the failing of the system.”
