The first lady said school nutrition has improved for the first time in 30 years and that 90% of schools are currently in compliance.

More than 4,000 pounds of rib-eye and other fresh beef products have been recalled because they could contain contaminated materials linked to mad cow disease.

The meat in question was processed at Fruitland American Meat in Jackson, Missouri, and distributed to a Whole Foods distribution center in Connecticut, which services its New England stores, and a restaurant in New York City and another one in Kansas City, Missouri. The beef was produced and packaged between September 2013 and April 2014.

The USDA has classified the recall a "Class II," meaning the health risk is low. There have been no reports of illness as a result of consumption.
