business news in context, analysis with attitude

Dow Jones reports that US Foodservice, the embattled division of Ahold that revealed a half-billion dollar overstatement of profits, has been awarded more than $26 million worth of contracts by the Pentagon.

Ironically, estimates are that US Foodservice does roughly a half-billion dollars worth of business with the US military.

We’ve heard of $250 hammers. Y’think that maybe US Foodservice can balance its books with $800 casseroles?
