Wausa man sentenced for sale of misbranded meatTell North Platte what you think

Paul Rosberg of Wausa will serve 18 months in federal prison for the sale of misbranded meat, U.S. Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced Friday.

Rosberg will pay a fine of $8,450 and be on supervised release for one year after he gets out, Gilg said. Senior U.S. District Judge Richard Kopf issued the sentence.

Rosberg is the former owner of Nebraska Finest Meats, a meat locker in Randolph. In October 2011 his company supplied the Omaha Public School system with nearly 2,650 pounds of ground beef and certified that the meat was federally inspected, when in fact it was not.

Agents of the U.S. Department of Agriculture agents intercepted the uninspected meat before it was served to students, Gilg said.

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