— Recalled meat will be picked up from the Wake County Public Schools warehouse Thursday by the N.C. Department of Agriculture.

The meat is part of a nationwide recall of beef from a a Southern California slaughterhouse that is the subject of an animal-abuse investigation.

The Wake County school system received about 35,000 pounds of the recalled beef, spokesman Bill Poston said Monday. None of it was served to students, he said.

Recalled beef also turned up in Johnston and Orange counties, but no illnesses have been reported.
