MOUNT CLEMEMS, MICHIGAN (WKOW) -- Complaints about prison-food are about to get a whole worse for a jail in southeast Michigan.
At Macomb County Jail, a broken freezer caused mold to grow on warm meals meant for inmates.
Now, residents of the jail are forced to eat an endless stream of bologna and peanut-butter and jelly sandwiches.
The mold was spotted last month in the jail's 50-year-old freezer, and money for a replacement won't arrive until early next year.
County officials warned the commissioner in 2005 that the freezers needed replacement.
The commissioner plans to ask for emergency funds next month to buy a new refrigerator.
