Feds Put Pork Back On The Menu In Prisons After Being Asked To Justify Removing It

I don’t know. On one hand, I really don’t care that people in prison have something taken away from them. On the other hand…BACON!

Feds Put Pork Back On The Menu In Prisons After Being Asked To Justify Removing It

According to the Washington Post, the move came after Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Ohio) penned a letter to Bureau of Prisons Director Charles E. Samuels, Jr, inquiring about the government’s decision to ban bacon, pork chops, ham, and all other pork products from the menus at its 122 federal prisons.

The Bureau of Prisons announced the decision earlier this month when the ban went into effect at the start of fiscal year 2016. According to the bureau, the increasing price of pork products and an alleged survey demonstrating that inmates don’t like the taste of pork justified the removal.

Sen. Grassley demand answers was to why bacon was removed in the first place, and never got one…so bacon was put back on the menu.  In other words, bacon IS the answer!
