Swedish school switches from meatballs to meat cubes

TRELLEBORG, Sweden, Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Workers at a Swedish school said officials gave them approval to switch from traditional round meatballs to meat cubes.

Cafeteria workers at Soderslstt High School in Trelleborg said constantly rolling thousands of meatballs by hand was both time-consuming and potentially injury-causing due to the strain it put on their wrists, The Local.se reported Thursday.

Kitchen staff chief Anna Malmberg said workers were given the go-ahead to cut the mince into small cubes instead of having to roll it into balls.

"One of the students told us they were the ugliest meatballs he'd ever seen, but the tastiest ones," Malmberg told the Trelleborgs Allehanda newspaper.
