Inmates, industry decry feds pulling pork from menus
by Bill Hanna
The Federal Bureau of Prisons is going whole hog in cutting pork from its menu.
With this month's start of fiscal year 2016, there will be no bacon, no pork chops, no pork roast, no pork sausage — no pork-related food at all — served to the nation's 205,723 federal inmates, including those at FCI Fort Worth or FMC Carswell.
While there have been grumblings from some inmates' family members that the prohibition had to do with Muslim or Jewish dietary restrictions, Bureau of Prisons spokesman Ed Ross said that isn't the case.
