Halliburton serves dirty food to the troops
Dec. 13, 2003
WASHINGTON, Dec. 13 2003 (Summary of Agence France Press Article) - The Department of Defense repeatedly warned Halliburton's subsidiary, KBR, that its food and the kitchens where it is prepared are "dirty," NBC News reported. A Pentagon report found that KBR's promises to clean up its food and kitchens "have not been followed through." The report found that KBR kitchens contain "blood all over the floor," "dirty pans," "dirty grills," "dirty salad bars" and "rotting meats ... and vegetables" in four of the military cafeterias the company operates in Iraq, reported NBC, citing Pentagon documents. KBR feeds 110,000 troops daily at a cost of 28 dollars per troop per day, NBC said. KBR blamed the dirty food and kitchens on "hostile conditions" in Iraq.
