A 143-million pound beef recall by the USDA may affect some school lunch programs in South Carolina. 

The beef from the California Westland/Hallmark  slaughterhouse has been recalled because the animals may have been sick when they were killed. 

Three South Carolina school districts, including the  Lexington School District Two, get their beef through Sodexho, which uses the Westland/Hallmark beef. 

Lexington Two officials say they do not have any of the contaminated beef in stock and will reject any new orders and may be contaminated. 

The recall effects beef beef products dating from February 1, 2006, and officials believe most has already been eaten. 

This is the biggest beef recall ever in the United States.
