Nebraska Company That Sold Non-inspected Meat To School System Indicted

The owners of  a Nebraska meat company have been charged in a six-count indictment for selling meat that was not inspected or misbranded to the Omaha public school system. Paul Rosberg, age 61, and Kelly Rosberg, age 44, both of Wausa, Nebraska, who own Nebraska’s Finest Meats, L.L.C., were indicted by a grand jury for the District of Columbia.

GavelCounts two through four allege that during that same time period, the Rosbergs sold  2,600 pounds of ground beef  that was labeled “United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) inspected,”when it was not. Each of those three counts carries a  maximum penalty of a three-year prison term, a $10,000 fine,  1 year supervised release, and a special assessment of $100.

Counts five and six allege that the Rossbergs made false statements to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s)  Food Services Inspection Service. The maximum penalty for each of those counts is a five year prison term, a $250,000 fine, a three-year supervised release, and a special assessment of $100.

Nebraska’s Finest Meats has suspended operations. No illnesses were reported in conjunctions with the sale of the non-inspected meat. With about 50,000 students in grades K-12, the Omaha Public Schools is  Nebraska’s largest public school system. The indictment was announced this week by the office of United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg in Nebraska.
