More than a dozen soldiers on deployment have become ill – with some serious enough to be hospitalized – after reportedly being given undercooked and contaminated food.
Soldiers have blown the whistle on the sub-par food supplied by to troops stationed in DC by a National Guard contractor. They shared photos of pink chicken, uncooked beef and moldy food with lawmakers and online while one staff sergeant revealed dozens of meals had to be thrown out when metal shavings were found inside dishes.
