Food stupidity from Labour

Stuff reports:

Patients could be fed week-old food under Government plans for hospitals, leaked documents have revealed.

A report obtained by TV3 News yesterday showed food would be made in two hubs, in Christchurch and Auckland, and then transported to hospitals across the country, saving $10 million.

Some of the food could be chilled for up to a week before being served. …

Labour spokeswoman said the move was ‘‘a shocker’’.

‘‘I’m trying to imagine what a silver beet looks like after six and half days in the chiller,’’ she said.

‘‘It can’t be good for patients to be fed food cooked and chilled for up to seven days.’’

A Health spokesperson should be more responsible that suggesting chilled food is unsafe.

Millions of NZers eat food that has been chilled and then reheated.

It really is pathetic, this type of mindless opposition.
