Default Allentown company accused of diluting spices sold to prisons

Allentown company accused of diluting spices sold to prisons

"An Allentown company diluted spices sold to prisons across the country, federal prosecutors in South Carolina said.

According to the false claims lawsuit filed last week, FlavorPros LLC cut spices with flour, starch and other fillers to underbid competitors for $500,000 in federal procurement contracts, The Post and Courier of Charleston reported."

Maybe they'll be able to buy their own spices from a prison commissary somewhere.

That is beyond disgusting. But it isn't the only thing that shortchanges jails/prisons. One of my husband's relatives worked at a Pennsylvania company (about an hour or so away from Allentown) that sold produce & food to institutions including prisons. They sold lower quality food to them at a discount. Then Aramark came in & took over a lot of the business. They also sell to colleges. That's why college food on campus is usually crappy. I wish the people selling this junk & the people in charge of prisons would be forced to eat it.
