Wausa Man Sentenced For Sale of Misbranded Meat to Omaha Public Schools

December 27, 2013

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Paul Rosberg, age 63, of Wausa, Nebraska, was convicted of the Sale of Misbranded Meat, a felony.  Senior United States District Judge Richard Kopf sentenced Rosberg to eighteen months imprisonment, a term of supervised release of one year and imposed a fine of $8,450. 

            In October of 2011 Rosberg while owner of Nebraska Finest Meats, a meat locker in Randolph, Nebraska, supplied the Omaha Public School system with approximately 2,650 pounds of ground beef certifying that the meat was federally inspected when in fact it was not inspected. Agents of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) were able to intercept all of the uninspected meat before it was served to the student population.

The case was investigated by the USDA Office of Inspector General with the assistance of the USDA Food Safety Inspection Service.
