LINCOLN, Neb. – A federal judge sentenced a man to a year of probation for falsely labeling hundreds of pounds of meat as USDA inspected and approved, according to the JournalStar.com.
Cory Douglas Allemang, an employee at Romans II, a meat processor in Norfolk, Neb., was charged in a three count indictment in January. In the indictment, he was accused of selling approximately 300 lbs. of sausages and approximately 400 lbs. of beef jerky by falsely representing that the meat products had been inspected by the US Department of Agriculture.
