The Food Safety and Inspection Service found no evidence of meat from sick cattle entering the country’s food supply allowing Central Valley Meat Company to provide beef for school lunch programs.

The Associated Press reported the USDA is buying meat for federal feeding programs from the Central California slaughterhouse. An undercover video showing some mistreated animals leading up to slaughter temporarily closed the facility.

The slaughterhouse will continue to be monitored and must successfully pass four consecutive quarterly audits by the USDA.
