School fires cook who served chili with kangaroo meat to students

School cook adds kangaroo meat to chili

Head Cook Kevin Frei said he added the kangaroo meat because of it's nutritional value as a very lean meat.

The marsupial meat was served to students at the middle and high school in western Nebraska.

However, Williams said, it was a mistake that students were not informed about what they were being served, and he said it won't happen again.

But Potter, NE School Superintendent Mike Williams later issued a groveling apology.

Williams continued: "If a family wants to eat exotic foods, they can do so on their own time - not at school".

While the superintendent stated that he does not believe that the kangaroo meat was unhealthy or risky because it met USDA standards for sale, the district vowed to not serve food of this nature again.

KSID - a radio station based in Sidney, Nebraska - said the school received two complaints, one of which claimed their child became ill after the lunch. Superintendent Williams addressed this matter in the previously mentioned post but declined to comment on whether or not the student's sickness stemmed from eating the meat.

But that doesn't mean the out-of-the-ordinary meal posed any real danger to students.

Mr Williams said he did not believe kangaroo meat was unhealthy or risky, but emphasised the fact it was not a normal staple of the school community's diet. The release did not include where the kangaroo meat was purchased from. "It has to meet USDA standards in order for companies to sell it".

Andrew Jordan, an Australian who co-owned the now-closed restaurant Eight Mile Creek in NY, described it in a 2010 interview with Esquire.

This story was updated Friday after the AP reported the school cook lost his job.
