Aramark

The Ohio Inspector General says the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction overpaid food service contractor Aramark Correctional Services by more than 57 thousand dollars, due to an inflated inmate count at the London Correctional Institution.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio is calling on the state’s Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections to end its contract with the private company that provides foods to Ohio’s prisons. The A C L U’s Mike Brickner says the food company, Aramark, has a pattern of problems.

Pennsylvania-based Aramark tells state officials it will close its East Columbus facility in November, cutting 70 jobs.
