SEATTLE —

State education officials say no schools in Washington state include a meat product known as "pink slime" on their menus.

The common beef filler is in the news after the USDA decided to allow school districts to opt out of using meat that includes "lean finely textured" beef.

But Washington districts have nothing to decide, says a spokesman for the state Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Nate Olson says the beef provider for the state of Washington does not have that kind of meat.

The state's largest school district, Seattle Public Schools, says it has never used the product. Spokeswoman Leslie Rogers says the district got a few calls after a local food blogger claimed "pink slime" was served at Seattle schools, but that misconception has been corrected.
